Institute for Space Robotics (Isr): NASA/GSFC plans to issue a Cooperative Agreement for the Institute for Space Robotics (ISR). The Cooperative Agreement Notice is expected to be issued late August 2005. This Cooperative Agreement is to create a center of excellence for dexterous robotics technology between GSFC and the recipient to perform: research in dexterous manipulators; dissemination of research results; and public outreach. Researchers in the ISR are all expected to work collaboratively with civil servants at GSFC. The ISR is also expected to become a vehicle to increase the involvement of the university community. The Recipients role in the ISR will be to work with GSFC to a) develop gap-filling technologies for dexterous space robotics and related ground stations through breadboard validation, b) perform environmental testing for these space technologies, c) perform system-level performance measurements using integrated high-fidelity dexterous robot testbeds, and d) quantify and report on the resulting robot capabilities for use in NASA programs. The Recipient of this cooperative agreement will establish university and industry partnerships as necessary to provide best-in-class key technologies that are needed to satisfy ISR objectives. The estimated value of this agreement is approximately $45M not to exceed 5 years. Only educational institutions and non-profit organizations shall submit an offer which shall be considered by the agency.
