NASA’s Science Mission Directorate has selected the Aerojet Redmond
Rocket Center, Redmond, Wash., for a grant to develop advanced
propulsion technologies for use beyond Earth orbit. The maximum
potential value of the grant is $600,000.

The purpose of the research is to enable or reduce trip times, mass,
and/or cost associated with NASA science missions to the outer
planets, satellites, and other solar system destinations.

The research also supports the Vision for Space Exploration, NASA’s
long-term plan to return astronauts to the moon and extend
exploration to Mars and beyond into the solar system.
