The purpose of this notice is to provide potential offerors an opportunity to submit comments on the draft Appendix. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Headquarters is issuing a Draft Appendix entitled “Utilizing Public-Private Partnerships to Advance Tipping Point Technologies” to the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) umbrella NASA Research Announcement (NRA) titled “Space Technology Research, Development, Demonstration, and Infusion 2016 (SpaceTech-REDDI-2016).

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) continues to embrace public-private partnerships to achieve its strategic goals for expanding capabilities and opportunities in space. A key aspect of NASA’s strategy is to stimulate the commercial space industry while leveraging those same commercial capabilities through public-private partnerships to deliver technologies and capabilities needed for future NASA, other government agency, and commercial missions. With the recent increase of U.S. private sector companies interested in space applications, NASA is seeking commercial space technologies that are at a “tipping point” in their development cycle.

For the purpose of this Appendix, a space technology is at a tipping point if an investment in Continue reading »
