NASA/GRC has a requirement for a Phase II, NRA down select, contract to Develop a robust, low emissions combustor concept capable of meeting the LTO (landing and take-off) and cruise NOx emissions reduction goals while contributing to the achievement of the fuel burn goal without negatively impacting carbon monoxide, unburned hydrocarbons or smoke, or particulates relative to CAEP/6 levels, at realistic N+2 engine conditions. Increased operability, stability, thermal management and performance of the combustor should be demonstrated for 100 hours in a full annular rig.

NASA/GRC intends to acquire the research via a down select. The original contracts were a result of an NRA announcement, NNH10ZEA001N. The original announcement was available via full and open competition with the expectation of a down select competition amongst the awardees.

The Government does not intend to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12.

Interested organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to perform the effort in writing to the identified point of contact not later than 4:30 p.m. local time on January 2, 2013. Such capabilities/qualifications will be evaluated solely for the purpose of determining whether or not to conduct this procurement on a competitive basis. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed effort on a full and open competition basis, based upon responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the government.
