In close coordination with the Exploration Systems Mission Directorate (ESMD), the Lunar Surface Systems Project Office at the NASA Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center (JSC), plans to issue a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for ESMD Lunar Surface Systems (LSS) Concept Studies. NASA has spent time over the past 2 years studying the various functional needs and technical challenges inherent in exploration of the Lunar Surface. NASA is seeking innovative concepts related to particular areas of study that will be detailed in the BAA release. Areas of study may include challenges associated with regolith moving, energy storage, minimum functionality habitats, consumables packaging, avionics and software.

NASA will conduct a briefing on the content of this BAA on June 6, 2008, at the US Chamber of Commerce briefing center in Washington, D.C.

NASA anticipates release of the Broad Agency Announcement in June 2008. Responses will be due in July 2008. All responsible sources may submit a proposal which shall be considered by NASA.

The NAICS Code and Size Standard are 541330 and average annual receipts of $25 million, respectively.
