Abstract
The Division of Astronomical Sciences of the National Science Foundation (NSF) support the design and construction of telescopes and instruments for ground-based astronomical observations in the visible, IR, and radio regions of the spectrum. Priorities are given to instrumentation deemed most likely to provide responses to the scientific questions central to current astronomy and astrophysics.
