1 National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA Technology Investments: Building America s s Future Dr. Mason A. Peck NASA Chief Technologist

2 Technology: Stepping Stones to the Future Half or more of the growth in the nation s gross domestic product in recent decades has been attributable to progress in technological innovation - NRC, Rising Above the Gathering Storm, Revisited NASA technology development addresses National priorities Directs NASA to work with industry, academia and international partners to implement new space technology development Encourages growth of U.S. commercial space sector Maintain a space technology base that aligns mission directorate investments, increases capability, lowers mission cost and supports long term needs Directs aggressive and prioritized technology investments to supports robotic and human exploration missions 2

3 Office of the Chief Technologist Serves as Advisor to Administration New STMD: STMD: Direct Technology Management and Budget Authority for the Space Technology Program Integrates Technology Investment Across the Agency Office of the Chief Technologist Leads Tech Transfer, Partnerships and Commercialization Activities Across the Agency Demonstrates and Communicates Societal Impacts of NASA Technology Investments Advocates Externally NASA NASA s R&D Programs 3

4 Space Technology: Investments in Our Future Enabling Our Future in Space: By investing in high payoff, disruptive technology that industry cannot tackle today, Space Technology matures the technology required for NASA s future missions in science and exploration while proving the capabilities and lowering the cost for other government agencies and commercial space activities. NASA at the Cutting Edge: Pushing the boundaries of aerospace technology and seizing opportunities, Space Technology allows NASA and our Nation to remain at the cutting edge 4

6 SSTIP Development 2010 Space Technology Roadmaps 140 challenges (10 per roadmap) 320 technologies 20-year horizon Revised every 4 years National Research Council (NRC) Study SSTIP Development Execution Prioritization: 100 top technical challenges 83 high-priority technologies (roadmap-specific) 16 highest of high technologies (looking across all roadmaps) cross-cutting priorities Requested every 4 years Updated ST Roadmaps: Incorporate NRC Study Results Developing a Strategic Space Technology Investment Plan: current investments current MD/Office priorities opportunities for partnership gaps vs. current budget and capabilities 20-Year horizon with 4-year implementation cadence Revised every 2 years Investment Portfolio Technology Developments (across full Technology Readiness Level (TRL) spectrum) Flight Demonstrations Must accommodate: - Mission Needs - Push Opportunities - Affordability - Technical Progress - Programmatic Performance - Commitments Budgeted annually 6

7 SSTIP Content Overview Framework Goals with capability objectives and technical challenges 4-year Investment Approach Three levels of investment 1. Core 2. Adjacent 3. Complementary Together these investments: Span the four goals Include pioneering, crosscutting and mission specific technology development Guide future technology expenditures Rapidly produce critical capabilities Seed future innovation Governance NASA Technology Executive Council (NTEC) Download the SSTIP: 7

8 SSTIP Overview Core Technology Investments Core technologies represent 8 focus areas of technology investment that are indispensable for NASA s present and planned future missions Core technologies are the central focus of technology investment and will comprise approximately 70% of the Agency s technology investment of the next 4 years ( = highest investments now) Launch and In-space Propulsion High Data-Rate Communications Lightweight Space Structures and Materials Robotics and Autonomous Systems Environmental Control and Life Support Systems Space Radiation Scientific Instruments and Sensors Entry, Descent, and Landing 8

9 Some New Paradigms The 2014 Strategic Technology Investment Plan will incorporate information technologies and aeronautics. Supporting emerging, entrepreneurial space enterprises Broadening of NASA's portfolio of space-systems paradigms for innovative science, including citizen science, hosted payloads, small sats. Put potential science P.I. s in the same room with technologists to exploit the opportunities of technology push. Multi-industry, multi-agency innovative partnerships that consist of collaborations on hard problems--grand challenges where no-one, not even NASA, can go it alone. 9

12 SSTIP Overview Principles of Investment and Execution Principles Principles optimize optimize investments, investments, maintain maintain aa balanced balanced portfolio, portfolio, use use developed developed technologies, technologies, and and provide provide transparency transparency to to the the American American public public Principles Guide Future Portfolio Investment and Execution Achieve the agreed upon balance among investments: Across all 14 Space Technology Areas in the Roadmaps Across all levels of technology readiness Ensure developed technologies are infused into Agency missions Develop technologies through partnerships and ensure developed technologies are infused throughout the domestic enterprise Use a systems engineering approach when planning technology investments Reach out to the public and share information about its technology investments 12

13 Adjacent Technology Investments Adjacent technologies are a significant focus and will comprise 20% of the Agency s technology investment over the next 4 years Though not part of the Core, these technologies are still of high priority and integral to supporting the 4 goals of investment Example Adjacent technologies: 13

14 NASA Technology Transfer Benefits Life on Earth Each year since 1976, Spinoff magazine highlights NASA technology transfer successes from the prior year. Nearly 1,700 Spinoff stories are available online in a searchable format at: abase National media continues to focus on commercialization benefits of NASA technologies. OCT has initiated a new weekly web series entity entitled Space Tech Improving our Lives at: We can, and will, do more. 14

15 Strategic Space Technology Investment Plan (SSTIP) 15

16 SSTIP Development Process 16

17 Goal 1: Extend and Sustain Human Presence and Activities in Space Autonomous systems such as satellite servicing will advance technologies to achieve improved spacecraft system reliability and performance. Transportation to planetary bodies will be enabled through entry, descent, and landing (EDL) technologies, such as low density supersonic decelerators. Every human space mission requires a thorough radiation mitigation plan, using a wide variety of technologies and systems. 17

18 Goal 2: Explore the Structure, Origin, and Evolution of the Solar System, and Search for Life Past and Present Exploring the solar system will require high-bandwidth communications to improve spacecraft performance. The Mars Science Laboratory will use high-bandwidth communication technologies as it searches for life past and present. Deep space atomic clock technologies are necessary for efficient and accurate navigation and enable transportation to and from planetary bodies. Autonomous robotic technologies allow for maneuvering and manipulation of samples on planetary surfaces, enabling in-situ measurement and exploration. 18

19 Goal 3: Expand Understanding of the Earth and the Universe (Remote Measurements) Technologies such as those being advanced for solar electric in-space propulsion will help enable space transportation. New techniques for using scientific instruments and sensors, like telescopes with a starshade, will enable future space-based observations. Efficient computing and data management will be enabled by technologies for improving flight computers, such as low-power flight computers for cubesats. 19

20 Goal 4: Energize Domestic Space Enterprise and Extend Benefits of Space for the Nation Technologies for hazard detection and avoidance enable descent and landing on Earth and other planetary bodies. Advancements in robotic and autonomous technologies will support future on-orbit assembly activities Autonomous mission operations require high data rates. Technologies to improve computing will extend benefits to domestic space enterprises. 20
