The OPEN ad hoc committee issued its report in 1979 [15], describing a major NASA program that would pursue an important part of the research strategy developed by the CSSP [16]. NASA issued an Announcement of Opportunity in 1979, proposals were written in 1980, and experiments were selected in 1981. Following extensive policy and programmatic planning activities, the OPEN program evolved into the ISTP program, wherein the NASA contribution was sharply limited, and ESA, ISAS, and IKI agreed to provide major contributions.

The bottom three elements have been synthesized from data received by a NASA-sponsored University Relations Task Force2 and refer specifically to NASA research funding to universities closely related to and including space physics programs. 2 These data were made available by the NASA Advisory Council University Relations Task Force (Steven Muller, Chair).
