Another Run at MSFC's Lunar Monopoly?
“We are requesting information concerning existing, prototype and conceptual sensors capable of providing Altimetry, Velocimetry, Terrain Relative Navigation (TRN) and Hazard Detection and Avoidance (HDA) measurements for lunar landing vehicles as set forth in the attachments. This document is for information and planning purposes and to allow industry the opportunity to verify reasonableness and feasibility of the requirement, as well as promote competition.”
Editor’s note: When ARC did something like this recently, MSFC went into full battle alert mode, screamed to NASA HQ Code L and Congress (once again) about turf encroachment, and eventually had the procurement killed. Let’s see what happens this time. Note to Dave King: per direction from Mike Griffin, you are not supposed to
whine run to Congress when you don’t agree with what the agency is doing. Fight that urge.
