Going Offshore to Study the Domestic Launch Market

6 January 2005: Modification to a Previous Presolicitation Notice: Study of the Small Satellite Market Given the Introduction of a Low Cost U.S. Small Launch Vehicle

"The synopsis is being cancelled because the requiring organization directed that the procurement action described in the original synopsis not be continued beyond the point of that synopsis."

Editor's note: I have asked the NASA MSFC procurement officer listed on this notice why it was cancelled.

29 December 2004: NASA Presolicitation Notice: Study of the Small Satellite Market Given the Introduction of a Low Cost U.S. Small Launch Vehicle, NASA MSFC

"NASA/MSFC has a requirement for a study of the small satellite market given the introduction of a low cost ($5M - $10M) U.S. small launch vehicle. NASA/MSFC intends to purchase the study from Commercial Space Technologies, Ltd. pursuant to FAR 13.106."

Editor's note: I am mystified as to why NASA MSFC is going offshore for this study by selecting Commercial Space Technologies, Ltd., a company located in the UK, when domestic companies such as the Teal Group and Futron have a long standing track record for such launch market studies. Oh yes, with regard to "a low cost ($5M - $10M) U.S. small launch vehicle", aren't we talking about SpaceX?
