New research announcement focused on technology development applications operating the International Space Station

Press release from: Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS)
Posted: Tuesday December 7 2021

A new search ad was released today soliciting flight projects leveraging the National Laboratory of the International Space Station (ISS) to advance technology development applications. The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space, Inc. (CASIS), director of the ISS National Laboratory, is looking for flight projects in the areas of applied research and development, translational medicine, maturation of the level of technological readiness and technological demonstration. As a public service company, the ISS National Laboratory enables researchers to take advantage of this multi-user facility to improve the quality of life on Earth, mature space business models, advance scientific knowledge in the future workforce and develop a sustainable and scalable market in the lowlands of the Earth. orbit (LEO).

In FY2021, CASIS announced two separate Technology Development Research Announcements with the aim of continuing technological advancements through the use of the ISS National Laboratory. With this third Technology Development Research Announcement, researchers can propose projects that take advantage of the unique environment of the ISS to develop, test, or evolve products and processes that have demonstrated potential to produce a direct or indirect positive short-term economic impact.

CASIS will host a webinar for interested researchers on December 15, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. EST to discuss the ISS facilities and capabilities associated with this research announcement. For those unable to attend, a recording of the webinar will be made available to the research community through the Research Announcement web page.

This research announcement will follow a two-step proposal submission process. Before being invited to submit a full proposal, all interested researchers must submit a Step 1: Concept Summary for review. Step 1: Concept summaries must be submitted by the end of the day of February 14, 2022. Step 2: Full proposals (from those invited to submit) will be due by the end of the day of May 2, 2022.

Flight proposals selected through this research announcement may receive funding to enable mission integration and operations support for projects to be implemented on the ISS. To learn more about this opportunity, including how to submit a Step 1: Concept Summary, please visit the Research Announcement webpage.

About the National Laboratory of the International Space Station (ISS): The International Space Station (ISS) is a unique laboratory that enables research and technological development not possible on Earth. As a public service company, the ISS National Lab enables researchers to take advantage of this multi-user facility to improve life on Earth, evolve space business models, advance scientific knowledge of the future workforce. work and develop a sustainable and scalable market in low earth orbit. Through this national orbiting laboratory, ISS research resources are available to support non-NASA science, technology, and education initiatives by U.S. government agencies, academic institutions, and the private sector. The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space, Inc. (CASIS) manages the national laboratory of the ISS, within the framework of a cooperation agreement with NASA, facilitating access to its permanent research environment in microgravity, a powerful point of view in low earth orbit, and the extreme and varied conditions of space.
