NASA Solicitation: Development of an On-Orbit Robotic Servicing Capability for Spacecraft

"Maintaining existing and growing commercial, governmental, and national security orbital assets indicates a need for extending the development and dissemination of on-orbit robotic servicing capabilities for existing and future spacecraft. NASA acknowledges that the commercial satellite industry has the proven capability to finance, design, develop, integrate, operate and own complex satellite systems. NASA is also aware that some in the industry are interested in providing satellite servicing as a commercial service. NASA seeks suggestions on methods for the agency to energize/stimulate/enable the development of a domestic and commercial capability in robotic satellite servicing."
