NASA R&D effort to focus on robotics
NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center is looking for support for research & development efforts around robotic space missions.
In a new sources sought notice, NASA is looking for companies that provide science and end-to-end systems engineering expertise in the areas of IT, simulation, modeling and operations analysis, test and evaluation, and space science and engineering.
Some of the potential requirements could include:
- Development and operation of high altitude and space-based flight systems and instruments.
- R&D and assessment of command, control, communications, computers, information operations, surveillance, reconnaissance and information technologies.
- Independent quantitative performance evaluations of complex operational systems.
Responses to the RFI are due March 1.
As we’ve reported before, space is a growing business opportunity and this is another sign of that opportunity.
