The purpose of this notice is to provide potential offerors an opportunity to submit comments on the draft Appendix. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Headquarters is issuing a Draft Appendix entitled “Utilizing Public-Private Partnerships to Advance Tipping Point Technologies” to the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) umbrella NASA Research Announcement (NRA) titled “Space Technology Research, Development, Demonstration, and Infusion 2016 (SpaceTech-REDDI-2016).

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) continues to embrace public-private partnerships to achieve its strategic goals for expanding capabilities and opportunities in space. A key aspect of NASA’s strategy is to stimulate the commercial space industry while leveraging those same commercial capabilities through public-private partnerships to deliver technologies and capabilities needed for future NASA, other government agency, and commercial missions. With the recent increase of U.S. private sector companies interested in space applications, NASA is seeking commercial space technologies that are at a “tipping point” in their development cycle.

For the purpose of this Appendix, a space technology is at a tipping point if an investment in Continue reading »

Conference Information

The Wyoming Geographic Information Science Center (WyGISC) at the University of Wyoming will host a two-day symposium to address topics associated with acquiring and deploying unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, i.e. drones), associated software and equipment, and technology and policy developments.  Experts from government, academia and industry will discuss UAV geospatial data collection capabilities and various UAV technology developments. The symposium will also discuss opportunities and challenges of UAVs and the policies being developed to properly regulate UAV systems.

Specific topics will include: Sensor options (panchromatic to multi-spectral), vehicle options (rotary powered, fixed wing), and pertinent legal and policy constraints (FAA regulations, privacy, use on public lands). Program format will include policy overviews, scientific talks, panel discussions and vendor demonstrations.

Who should attend?

Geospatial professionals, engineers, natural resource managers, city and county planners, emergency and first responders, scientists, students, faculty and anyone interested in learning more about the opportunities and constraints concerning the use of UAVs and the systems which support them.

Visit the symposium website for a detailed agenda of speakers, discussion topics and sponsorship opportunities.
