New Frontiers June Technology Workshop

New Frontiers Program June Technology Workshop

NASA has finalized the date and location for the Technology Workshop for the New Frontiers 4 Announcement of Opportunity (AO). The workshop will take place on Wednesday, June 1, 2016, at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Bethesda, MD. The hotel is easily accessible via the areaโ€™s Metrorail system. Proposers preparing for the fourth New Frontiers AO are encouraged to attend.

The goal of this workshop is to educate the potential proposing community on technologies being offered by NASA and other organizations and inform how each technology will be supported to the proposal team. Technology providers other than NASA are welcome to participate in this workshop and will be accommodated as space permits. The event will be divided into two sections: briefings on each technology offering in the morning and the opportunity for small-group meetings in the afternoon. A poster session will be organized if all interested technology providers cannot be accommodated on the agenda. In order to reach the widest audience possible, all briefings will also webcast. Webcast and telecom details are TBD, but will be announced when available. Information will also be posted in the New Frontiers Acquisition website (http://newfrontiers.larc.nasa.gov/).

All interested parties may attend the Technology Workshop. All expenses and arrangements for attending this meeting are the responsibility of the attendees. Note: Travel and associated costs of attendance are not allowable as direct costs under another Federal Government award, e.g., a contract, grant, or cooperative agreement. Government employees may attend and be authorized travel and associated costs as a matter of official business.

Please contact Dr. Curt Niebur, Lead Program Scientist for New Frontiers, via E-mail at [email protected] if you are interested in providing information on your technology to potential proposers at this workshop.
