NASA is continually looking for opportunities to help advance the development of U.S. commercial space products and services. With the recent increase of U.S. private-sector companies interested in space operations, and the associated terrestrial spin-off applications, NASA is seeking to better understand U.S. industry interests in the development of Cryogenic Fluid Management (CFM) technologies. NASA is seeking to mature compelling CFM technologies of significant interest to commercial space that will be a benefit for both the commercial space industry and NASA.
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 this Request for Information (RFI) on industry-developed CFM technologies that could support future commercial and NASA space missions.
RFIs are due on August 11, 2017 at 5pm ET
