NASA Exploration Integration and Science Directorate (EISD) is seeking information on small experiments that can be delivered and installed in the Hermes facility on the International Space Station (ISS) as early as Calendar Year (CY) 2018. Multiple space vehicles are available to provide commercial cargo delivery to the ISS in this timeframe. Information on ISS experiments that could be launched in 2018 or later would be valuable to NASA as it works to finalize the facility’s capabilities. Experiments of interest should address one or more of NASA’s Technology Strategic Knowledge Gaps (SKGs), the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Decadal Surveys, NASA Technology Roadmaps, or the strategic objectives in the NASA Strategic Plan. Responses to this Request For Information (RFI) are sought broadly from industry, universities, non-profit organizations, NASA Centers (including the Jet Propulsion Laboratory) and other U.S. government agencies. These responses will be used by NASA for planning and strategy development.
