NASA will provide up to $100,000 in funds for technology projects to support the agency’s current and future space mission programs, Fedscoop reported Friday.
Colby Hochmuth writes NASA will select proposals for research and funding under phase one of the agency’s Innovative Advanced Concepts program.
“Our NIAC program provides an onramp for early stage technology concepts to take seed and potentially create revolutionary new capabilities for space exploration that might one day change how we live and work as we explore the cosmos,” Michael Gazarik, a NASA associate administrator for space technology in Washington, told Fedscoop.
The agency has backed innovations such as electromagnets meant to protect space vehicles from radiation and concepts for under-ice ocean explorations, according to the report.
Interested parties can submit their proposals to the agency through Dec. 18, Hochmuth reports.
