Ares V Update

NASA Seeks Concept Proposals for Ares V Heavy Lift Rocket

"On Monday, Jan. 5, NASA issued a request for proposal for the Ares V rocket that will perform heavy lift and cargo functions as part of the next generation of spacecraft that will return humans to the moon. The request is for Phase I concept definition and requirements development for the Ares V rocket. The request for proposal defines the procurement approach for Phase I of the Ares V acquisition. The contract work will include developing products to enable NASA to successfully complete the system requirements review and system definition review, critical milestones in the development of the rocket. Completion of the system definition review will verify the design concept and demonstrate mission objectives can be met."

Editor's note: (sigh) A lot of people are now spending a lot of time working on proposals that will all too soon be overcome by post-transition events.
