NASA/GRC is hereby soliciting information about potential sources for the design, development and operations of space flight systems, associated support systems and equipment, and related ground development activities supporting current and future space flight missions. The NASA Glenn Research Center plans to issue a draft Request for Proposal (DRFP)for industry comments in June 2008 for this effort. Glenn Research Center has an extensive portfolio of Space Flight Programs and Projects that support the Agency’s Exploration Systems, Science and Space Operations Mission Directorates. This contract encompasses the definition, design, fabrication, assembly, integration, test and operation of a broad array of space flight projects that interface with a wide range of carriers. They include, but are not limited to: - Unique ISS flight investigations in combustion science, fluid physics, materials science and accelerometry; - Instrument packages and power, propulsion and sensor subsystems for Earth science, lunar exploration and other space science missions aboard spacecraft and airborne science platforms; - Advanced technology development of exercise countermeasures equipment, medical devices and biosensors for long duration space missions; - Ground based research investigations in analog environment facilities in support of exercise countermeasures development; - Computational modeling of advanced technologies, physiological systems and probabilistic risk assessment; - Advanced technology development and demonstrations in the areas of power, in-space propulsion, space communications systems and subsystems, lunar surface and in-situ resource applications, spacecraft fire safety, and energy storage and distribution; - International Space Station, Ares and Orion systems and subsystems.

Contract performance is scheduled for January 2009 through December 2013.

No solicitation exists; therefore, do not request a copy of the solicitation. If a solicitation is released it will be synopsized in FedBizOpps and on the NASA Acquisition Internet Service.
