NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) is hereby soliciting information about potential sources for the definition, design, development and operations of space flight systems, associated support systems and equipment, and related ground development activities supporting current and future space flight missions. NASA GRC plans to issue a draft Request for Proposal (DRFP) for industry comments in April 2013 for this effort. NASA GRC has an extensive portfolio of Space Flight Programs and Projects that support the Agency’s Human Exploration and Operations and Science Mission Directorates. This contract shall encompass the definition, design, fabrication, assembly, integration, test and operation of a broad array of space flight projects that interface with a wide range of carriers. They include, but are not limited to: – Unique ISS flight investigations in combustion science, fluid physics, materials science, accelerometry, and communications technology; – Instrument packages and power, propulsion and sensor subsystems for Earth science, lunar exploration and other space science missions aboard spacecraft and airborne science platforms; – Advanced technology development of exercise countermeasures equipment, medical devices and biosensors for long duration space missions; – Ground based research investigations in analog environment facilities in support of exercise countermeasures development; – Computational modeling of advanced technologies, physiological systems and probabilistic risk assessment; – Advanced technology development and demonstrations in the areas of power, in-space propulsion, space communications systems and subsystems, lunar surface and in-situ resource applications, spacecraft fire safety, and energy storage and distribution; – International Space Station, Space Launch System and Orion systems and subsystems.

Contract performance is scheduled for January 2014 through December 2021.

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 five (5) pages or less indicating the ability to perform all aspects of the effort described herein.
