From Keith Belvin – Assumptions to guide workshop outcome:
1) Assume the product will be given to the S&M Principal Technologist in STMD to guide development of a Strategic Investment Plan (STP)
2) Propose 3-5 Key Capability Goals:
1. High Mass to Mars Surface
2. High Speed Planetary Probes/Earth Return
3. Precision Landing and Hazard Avoidance
4. EDL Data and Model Improvement
ii. Robotics and Autonomy
1. Robotic and Systems Autonomy
2. Extreme Terrain Mobility
3. Caretaker Robots – Astronaut Assistants
4. Wearable Cognitive Systems
3) For each Capability Goal,
a. Provide a description
i. What new missions will be enabled? Which MD(s) has the driving need
ii. Why is the technology/capability needed?
iii. What kinds of technologies are needed to create the capability?
b. Capability Challenge – Why is it hard?
c. Current SOA and what is the industry/OGA landscape
d. When is the capability needed?
e. Why is this the right time to develop the technology/capability?
4) As time permits, begin thinking about what projects should be done across the TRL spectrum and across the nine STMD programs. Acquisition Strategy – competed, intramural, SBIR, NSTRF, … etc. Time phase the projects in 2-3 year efforts.
We do not have any written request from Jurz. Merely a verbal that says “Langley you should own S&M” Bring us some good ideas and projects. STMD is preparing a strategic investment plan. Drafts are being formed now and they hope to complete by end of Feb. The above format will directly insert into their on-going work.
