NASA/GSFC is interested in finding partners for a flight subsystem for spaceflight electronics potentially including low- and high-voltage DC and RF power supplies, analytical instrument micro-controllers, valve, heater, and temperature sensor controllers, harnessing, and associated EGSE (e.g. instrument simulator) to integrate with and service a planetary spaceflight science instrument. This partnership opportunity is for participation in a potential response to a 2013 NASA Announcement of Opportunity (AO) for a science investigation for an upcoming mission opportunity. A potential NASA/GSFC investigation may include instrumentation incorporating subsystems from non-NASA/GSFC partners. The AO is expected to be a single-step process with selected investigations comprising the baseline payload for the flight mission, entering Phase A in 2014. This partnership opportunity is being issued to select teaming partners to help prepare NASA/GSFC science instrument concepts for the proposal submittal; and to provide a spaceflight qualified instrument subsystem should the instrument be selected for flight. Responses will be treated as proprietary information and controlled as such. The respondents shall deliver the final requested information in a presentation format, details of the format will be provided to qualified NOI respondents. Final presentation packages must be received by 4:00PM EDT, August 15, 2013. Please provide one DVD or CD of the presentation and deliver them to: Julie Thienel NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Code 101 Building 8, Room 301-D Greenbelt, MD 20771 301.614.7016. Alternatively, the final presentation package may be delivered electronically by 4PM EDT, August 15, 2013. Please provide a method to access the presentation electronically, do not send as an email attachment. There will be no exchange of funds between the teaming partners for the portion of this partnership opportunity dealing with the preparation of the submission. Funding will be available for Phase A and subsequent phases should the investigation be approved to continue through the mission-defined gates for flight. This solicitation/synopsis is not to be construed as a commitment by the Government nor will the Government pay for the information solicited. An ombudsman has been appointed. See Internet Note B.
