NASA Ropes in Small Businesses
NASA Ropes in Small Businesses to Further Mars Journey
 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , 2-May-2015  12:26:25 PM
The US space agency has selected proposals from 254 small businesses and 39 research institutions in the US for grants to develop new technologies that will further NASA's journey to Mars.

"The selected proposals demonstrate the ingenuity and creativity of America's small businesses," said Steve Jurczyk, associate administrator for the agency's Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) at NASA headquarters in Washington.

The proposals are solicited, vetted and managed through NASA's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programmes.

"Enabling NASA's future missions, including human exploration of Mars, requires broad participation, and the SBIR/STTR Programs ensure the agency is benefiting from the passionate and determined minds of the private sector," Jurczyk noted.

Proposals that lead to the successful development of ideas and products could result in contracts with a combined approximate value of $47.7 million.

NASA is funding proposals that will enable space transportation for human and robotic missions, new ways to protect astronauts in space, and innovative ways to keep spacecraft systems operational -- technologies that may, one day, find their way into the vehicles and systems used to explore the solar system
