Committee on NASA Space Technology Roadmaps
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, formerly known as the National Research Council (NRC), will appoint an ad hoc committee to evaluate the most recent drafts of 14 technology roadmaps that NASA has revised and updated. The scope of the technologies to be considered includes those that enable NASA’s human exploration and science missions.
Aeronautics Research and Technology Roundtable
The Aeronautics Research and Technology Roundtable (ARTR) convenes senior-most representatives from industry, universities and NASA to define and explore critical issues related to NASA’s aeronautics research agenda that are of shared interest; to frame systems-level research issues; and to explore options for public-private partnerships that could support rapid, high-confidence knowledge transfer. This forum will be designed to facilitate candid dialogue among participants, to foster greater partnership among the NASA-related aeronautics community, and, where appropriate, carry awareness of consequences to the wider public.
Space Technology Industry-Government-University Roundtable
The NRC Space Technology Industry-Government-University Roundtable (STIGUR) convenes senior-most representatives from industry, universities, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and other government agencies to define and explore critical issues related to NASA's space technology research agenda.
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.
