Activities in Progress

Aviation Safety Assurance

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will convene an ad hoc committee to create a national research agenda for the development of the suite of tools needed to support a prototype integrated safety monitoring and assurance system that detects, predicts, and prevents safety problems in the national airspace system in real time, particularly with regard to the safety of commercial transports.
 

Committee on A Midterm Assessment of Implementation of the Decadal Survey on Life and Physical Sciences Research at NASA (joint with SSB)

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine shall convene an ad hoc committee to review the progress of NASA's Space Life and Physical Sciences Research and Application program in addressing the strategies, goals, and priorities outlined in the 2011 NRC decadal survey report, Recapturing a Future for Space Exploration, Life and Physical Sciences Research for a New Era.

 

Standing Activities


Committee on Biological and Physical Sciences in Space

The overarching purpose of the committee is to support scientific progress in space research in the biological, medical, and physical sciences and assist the federal government in integrating and planning programs in these fields. The scope for CBPSS spans plant and microbial biology, animal and human physiology, and basic and applied physical sciences, in the context of understanding the role of gravity in living and physical systems in order to develop capabilities required for space exploration, and using the space environment as a tool of science to advance knowledge.
