NASA Request for Information Synopsis for the Flagship Technology Demonstrations
“The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is seeking information through this Request for Information (RFI) to identify, improve and/or enhance approaches that will demonstrate the targeted technologies described in this RFI. NASA has defined six (6) targeted technologies that are to be demonstrated via spaceflight in support of the Flagship Technology Demonstration (FTD) effort. Towards this end, four (4) Point of Departure (POD) missions have been identified. While emphasis in the responses should address the existing POD missions, alternate approaches may be suggested in order to more efficiently demonstrate the selected technologies.”
