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.
