ESMD Gets Back To Basics

NASA Request for Information: Enabling Technology Development and Demonstration Program

"In Fiscal Year 2011, NASA plans to begin the Enabling Technology Development and Demonstrations (ETDD) Program. The primary goal of the ETDD Program is to develop and demonstrate the technologies needed to reduce cost and expand the capability of future space exploration activities. A secondary goal is to create opportunities for engineers and scientists from NASA, private industry, and academia to gain experience in designing, building, and operating new space technologies and spacecraft. A third goal is to develop technologies that can be relevant to non-exploration space activities and life on Earth."

Keith's note: Hmm, didn't Craig Steidle try and set NASA off on this path 6 years ago? Imagine if NASA had followed that path.
