NASA/ARC is hereby soliciting information about potential sources for Intelligent Systems Research and Development Support (ISRDS). The requirement is to provide technical support to perform research, and development in the area of computer science technologies for NASA. It will consist of supporting the Exploration Technology Development Program’s research in particular areas that include autonomous systems (e.g., adaptive control, planning and scheduling, robotics, planetary visualization systems), decision support systems (e.g., mission operations), reliable software (e.g., program synthesis, and verification of the crew exploration vehicle control software), intelligent diagnostics and prognostics (e.g. modeling faults and failure modes and propagating them in time), data mining (e.g., identifying classes, and predicting recurring anomalies), and information management (e.g., collaborative and distributed knowledge management for NASA programs).

Additional required capabilities include:

  • the ability to sponsor H1-B research scientists
  • access to multiple universities and other research organizations for their skills and expertise in areas needed to support the Agency needs
  • support of the Intergovernmental Personnel Assignment (IPAs) program
  • mission operations support at different Centers including JSC, JPL and KSC for the Constellation program under the Exploration Systems Mission Directorate (ESMD)
  • knowledge of the Exploration Technology Development Program (ETDP) is required. Specific capabilities required include robust software engineering, requiring expertise in formal methods and algorithms to assess the accuracy of flight level code.

No solicitation exists; therefore, do not request a copy of the solicitation. If a solicitation is released it will be synopsized in FedBizOpps and on the NASA Acquisition Internet Service. It is the potential offeror’s responsibility to monitor these sites for the release of any solicitation or synopsis.

Interested offerors/vendors having the required specialized capabilities to meet the above requirement should submit a capability statement of 7 pages or less indicating the ability to perform all aspects of the effort described herein.

Please advise if the requirement is considered to be a commercial or commercial-type product. A commercial item is defined in FAR 2.101.

This synopsis is for information and planning purposes and is not to be construed as a commitment by the Government nor will the Government pay for information solicited. Respondents will not be notified of the results of the evaluation. Respondents deemed fully qualified will be considered in any resultant solicitation for the requirement.

The Government reserves the right to consider a small business or 8(a) set-aside based on responses hereto.
