Space Technology Research Institutes (STRI)Appendix: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Headquarters has released a solicitation, titled Space Technology Research Institutes (STRI), as an appendix to the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) umbrella NASA Research Announcement (NRA) title Space Technology Research, Development, Demonstration, and Infusion 2018 (SpaceTech-REDDI-2018), on My 31, 2018. The solicitation is available by opening the NSPIRES homepage at b selecting "Solicitations," then selecting "Open Solicitations," and, finally, selecting "Space Technology Research Institutes (STRI)." The Space Technology Mission Directorate is seeking to invest, via research institutes, in university-led, multi-disciplinary basic research and technology development within particular area of strong interest to NASA and the wider aerospace community. The institutes construct allows for the participation of experts from a wide range of fields and organizations in a single distributed research structure, enabling greater progress and benefit for all involved. The institute approach facilitates a more focused and coordinated set of research and development efforts than typically arise from separate solicitations and individual research grants. In addition, because the institute maintains this focus for several years, more effective and substantial research progress is envisioned for the featured high priority research areas. An awarded institute will typically be 5 years in duration and up to $15M total over the 5-year period. Only accredited U.S. universities are eligible to submit proposals; teaming with other universities is required, and teaming with non-profit entities and industry is permitted. See Appendix section 3.0 for full list of eligibility requirements. The award instrument will be a grant. The Appendix exclusively seeks proposals that are responsive to the following topics: Revolutionary Propulsion for Rapid Deep Space Transit Smart Deep Space Habitats (SmartHabs) The financial and programmatic support for STRI comes from the Space Technology Research Grants Program within the Space Technology Mission Directorate. Awards are planned to start in Spring 2019. Proposals are being solicited via a two-step process where preliminary proposal are mandatory and only those invited may submit a full proposal. NASA plans to make approximately 2 awards as a result of this STRI solicitation, subject to the availability of funds and receipt of meritorious proposals. The actual number of awards will depend on the quality of proposal received; NASA reserves the right to make no awards under this solicitation. All preliminary proposals must be submitted electronically through NSPIRES or through ( by an authorized organizational representative.
