NASA Flight Opportunities (FO): Technology Advancement Utilizing Suborbital Flight Opportunities

Posted: April 11, 2017 

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Headquarters has released a solicitation, titled “NASA Flight Opportunities (FO): Technology Advancement Utilizing Suborbital Flight Opportunities”. The program strategically invests in the growth of the commercial spaceflight market while helping advance technologies that will enable future space missions for science and exploration by selecting promising technologies from industry, academia, and government to test on commercial suborbital launch vehicles, reduced gravity aircraft and high-altitude balloon flights.

The purpose of this Appendix is to provide funding for the testing or demonstration of crosscutting space technologies in relevant environments through flights on reusable suborbital launch vehicles, reduced gravity aircraft, and high-altitude balloons. These flight tests should fit into an overall technology maturation plan as a bridge between laboratory testing and demonstration in Earth orbit or beyond.

Applications are due on or before June 2, 2017, and selections will be announced in September 2017 (target). The solicitation is available by opening the NASA Research Opportunities homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com, selecting "Solicitations," then selecting "Open Solicitations," and, selecting "NASA Flight Opportunities (FO)." To go directly to the solicitation page, visit http://tinyurl.com/NASA-17FO-F1A.

The Flight Opportunities program will conduct two Q&A sessions to provide an overview of the solicitation and to answer questions about the proposal process. The dates for the sessions will be announced in the near future. See the solicitation page on NSPIRES for more details.

  • The scholarship/s shall be available each year.  The student can only win once.
  • The Education Committee of ASA will administer the scholarship competition.
  • The ASA delegate/alternate from each member state shall publicize the scholarship through the state’s aerospace-related institutions of higher learning, career centers, and/or other appropriate entities.
  • The candidate’s application for the scholarship shall include community-related activities, school-related activities, grade point average, field of study and an official transcript.  An academic-based, personal letter of recommendation shall also accompany the application.  These documents shall be sent to the attention of the ASA Education Committee Chair at the address on the application form for review.
  • The applicant may only be an entering sophomore or junior in an undergraduate degree program pursuing study in the areas of physical sciences, engineering, or aviation or aerospace related fields.
  • Scholarship candidate’s application should be submitted to the ASA Education Committee Chair by April 30th of each year.
  • The scholarship would be made available for the fall school term of the year under consideration.
  • The scholarship shall be awarded in the form of a check made out to the scholarship awardee/awardees appropriate school, and it shall be understood that the funds are for tuition and books only.
  • The ASA member state of the recipient shall consider staging a presentation of the scholarship in the recipient’s state with the presence of the ASA representative/organization and the Lt. Governor, where applicable.

The scholarship application and submission instructions can be found on the ASA website: www.aerostates.org under the Education tab.
