The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Ames Research Center (ARC) is hereby soliciting information under this Request for Information (RFI) to gather and assess industry availability and capability to provide small satellite technologies that shall enable a variety of Small Satellite based missions. This document is for information and planning purposes only, and to promote competition. On behalf of the NASA Space Technology Mission Directorate’s Small Spacecraft Systems Virtual Institute (S3VI), NASA ARC is currently collecting information regarding the State of the Art for technology, components, and systems relevant to small spacecraft for Earth and interplanetary mission design. Areas of interest include: Structures, Materials & Mechanisms; Complete Spacecraft Platforms; Communications; Propulsion; Power; Command and Data Handling; Attitude Determination & Control; Thermal Systems; Software (Architectures, Methodologies); Guidance, Navigation and Control; Spacecraft Integration; Launch and Deployment; Optoelectronics; and Deorbit Mechanisms. In order to be considered State of the Art, a technology, component, or system shall be at Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 5 or greater, preferably commercial. Documentation of this level must be available. TRL definitions can be found at http://www.nasa.gov/pdf/458490main_TRL_Definitions.pdf. ARC is seeking capability statements from all interested parties, including but not limited to, educational, industrial, and not-for-profit organizations, Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), 8(a), Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB), Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB), Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) businesses, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU)/Minority Institutions (MI) for the purposes of determining the appropriate level of competition and/or small business subcontracting goals. The Government reserves the right to consider a Small, 8(a), WOSB, SDVOSB, or HUBZone business set-aside based on responses hereto. Responses to this RFI should be entered into spoonsite.com with the info on the attachment “Atch - S3VI Spoonsite Response.pdf” which is attached to this notice.
