NASA is continually looking for opportunities to help advance the development of U.S. commercial space capabilities, products, and services. NASA is seeking technology areas of significant interest to the commercial space industry that have the potential to spur new markets and grow existing ones. A key aspect of NASA’s overall strategy is to stimulate the commercial space industry while leveraging commercial capabilities through public-private partnerships to deliver the technologies needed for future NASA missions. NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) is seeking input through a Request for Information (RFI) to inform commercial space technology development topic areas for future Tipping Point appendices in which technology projects would advance commercial capabilities to a point where industry would further develop and qualify them for market. STMD is also seeking input to inform future Announcement of Collaborative Opportunity solicitations targeting technologies that would benefit from leveraging government expertise, technology transfer, and facilities for co-development. Finally, STMD is seeking input to develop commercial space technology development concepts for the Early Stage Portfolio and academic/industrial partnerships of benefit to the commercial space sector.
