Nasa is seeking innovative minds from the US universities for the innovative ideas and solutions in the space technology. Nasa has fixed research topics proposals regarding this. The NASA solicitation requests proposals are on five science research topics.

These science research topics are decided by Nasa in the field of space technology needs improvement over existing technology or capabilities.

The five research topics area proposals for the U.S. Universities are :

1) Proposals are sought for science instruments.

2) Cryogenic Propellant Storage for long-duration space exploration.

3) Optics Technologies.

4) Oxygen Recovery for life support systems.

5) Improve our understanding of and protection from near-Earth asteroids.

Short descriptions of the above topics are as below:

1) Proposals are sought for science instruments : This science research topic are seeks the new instrumentation technologies for the exploration of the planetary bodies of our solar system.

2) Cryogenic Propellant Storage for long-duration space exploration : Long duration flights will need the better engines and the propellants. The future space exploration will need long duration storage of cryogenic propellants in a Zero gravity environment. Nasa is interested regarding

“how to mature fundamental experimental and computational solutions to address the challenges of cryogenic storage of liquid hydrogen.

3) Optics Technologies : In this science research topic Nasa is seeking the

“advances in optics technologies to enable the challenging science measurements that may contribute to the understanding of the first moments of the universe”.

4) Oxygen Recovery for life support systems : This area of research needs the

“novel technology that will help close the atmosphere revitalization loop aboard spaceships and surface habitats during long duration space missions. This New technologies must have the potential to significantly increase the oxygen recovery rate beyond the current state of the art.”

5) Improve our understanding of and protection from near-Earth asteroids : In this science research topic

“NASA is seeking proposals for new technologies to better understand and protect our planet from near-Earth asteroids.”

NASA is planning to make approximately 10 awards based on the merit of proposals.  As Nasa says:

Each award will be made for one year with an additional year of research possible. The typical annual award value is expected to be approximately $250,000. Second-year  funding will be contingent on the availability of appropriated funds and technical progress. Only accredited U.S. universities may submit proposals to this solicitation. Notices of intent are due by April 29 with proposals due May 21.
