A--SMALLSAT TECHNOLOGY PARTNERSHIPS

National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Ames Research Center | Published April 20, 2015  -  Deadline June 8, 2015
cpvs

This synopsis was posted previously on 20 June 2015 under solicitation NNH15ZOA001N-15STP_E1. Its number has been modified slightly to accomodate posting of this synopsis on grants.gov. No other changes have been made to this synopsis from earlier postings on NAIS, but this supercedes those. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has released a solicitation, titled Smallsat Technology Partnerships (STP), as an appendix to the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) umbrella NASA Research Announcement (NRA) titled "Space Technology Research, Development, Demonstration, and Infusion 2015 (SpaceTech-REDDI-2015), on April 20, 2015. The solicitation is available by opening the NSPIRES homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ , selecting "Solicitations," then selecting "Open Solicitations," and, finally, selecting Smallsat Technology Partnerships (STP). STMD, and the Small Spacecraft Technology Program in particular, seek proposals from U.S. colleges and universities in collaboration with NASA through award of cooperative agreements. Projects may be for ground-based technology development or development of spacecraft or payloads for suborbital, balloon or orbital space flight technology demonstrations. The objectives of the Smallsat Technology Partnerships (STP) are to: Engage the unique talents and fresh perspectives of the university community to develop new technologies and capabilities for small spacecraft or to use small spacecraft as a development and demonstration platform for more broadly applicable technologies. Share NASA experience and expertise in relevant university projects. Increase support to university student efforts in small spacecraft technology through funding and collaboration with NASA, to foster a new generation of innovators for NASA and the nation. Engage NASA personnel across the agency in the rapid, agile, and cost-conscious small spacecraft development approaches that have evolved in the university community. The goals of STP include collaboration with university teams that have experience in small spacecraft development and also extension of support to colleges and universities that have little or no previous involvement in this field. Colleges and universities with experience in small spacecraft development are encouraged to team with other college and universities to address these dual goals. In addition, collaboration with a NASA Center or NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is a key feature of these STP projects. This appendix is soliciting proposals for projects in the following specific topic areas: Topic 1: Precise attitude control and pointing systems for cubesats. Topic 2: Power generation, energy storage, and thermal management systems for small spacecraft. Topic 3: Simple low-cost deorbit systems. Topic 4: Communications and tracking systems and networks. Appropriate technologies for development must have a starting Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of at least 3 (analytical and experimental critical function and/or characteristic proof of concept) and no more than 6 (system/sub-system model or prototype demonstration in a relevant environment). All proposals must be submitted electronically through NSPIRES or through Grants.gov (www.grants.gov) by an authorized organizational representative. Notices of Intent (not mandatory) are due by May 20, 2015. Proposals are due on or before June 8, 2015. Detailed submission instructions are provided in the solicitation. Potential proposers and their proposing organizations are urged to familiarize themselves with the submission system(s), ensure they are registered in NSPIRES, and submit the required proposal materials well in advance of the deadline. The estimated ceiling on an individual cooperative agreement award is $200,000 and the estimated total program funding is $1,600,000. Comments and questions may be submitted by e-mail by May 20, 2015 to: Rachel Khattab, rachel.khattab@nasa.gov . Responses to inquiries will be answered by e-mail and may also be included in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document located on the NSPIRES page associated with the solicitation; anonymity of persons/institutions who submit questions will be preserved.

(End of Clause) STATEMENT OF WORK-- High throughput sequencing of amplicons from in vitro evolution experiments. 1. INTRODUCTION High throughput sequencing (HTS) provides critical insight into populations of in vitro evolved RNAs. The evolved RNA populations are used to generate DNA amplicons that are specifically designed and prepared for analysis on Illumina HTS instruments. Illumina HTS instruments are expensive, frequently improved, and require considerable expertise to operate efficiently. Therefore, we are seeking outside service providers to carry out HTS for our in vitro evolution projects. 2. SCOPE Periodic sequencing of indexed DNA libraries on Illumina HTS instruments. The DNA libraries are amplicons prepared at the NASA Ames Research Center. The libraries are designed to be run on Illumina HTS instruments, but they are not prepared using Illuminas sample preparation kits; however, previous preparations of these amplicon libraries have been successfully sequenced on an Illuminas Hiseq 2000 instrument. For each service ordered, the contractor shall have representative available to discuss the specifics of NASAs library design and any recent changes to the requirements and capabilities of Illumina instruments. Two types of sequencing runs are required. The first type of sequencing runs shall be provided on 1 to 3 lanes of an HTS flow cell on a HiSeq instrument (1 x 100 bases, single end reads). The contractor shall run samples on a single lane on a HiSeq instrument. The second type of sequencing runs shall be provided on a MiSeq instrument (2 x 250 bases, paired end reads). HTS data shall be provided in fastq format and data from indexed samples shall be sorted into separate index-specific fastq files. NASA estimates requirement for-- but does guarantee orders-- from 2 to 7 sets of sequencing runs per year. Each set of sequencing runs will require 1-3 HiSeq lanes and/or 1-3 MiSeq lanes. Deliverables The contractor shall provide the following: - Files with sequencing data from the sequencing run in fasq format. Sequence data will be demultiplexed i.e. sorted into separate fastq files based on sequencing indexes. - A summary of standard sequencing run statistics. The data shall be made available in downloadable form from a server or shipped to NASA Ames Research Center, Bldg N239, MS 239-4, Moffett Field CA, 94035 in lieu of downloading. NASA intends to require this service periodically over the course of five years. Individual sequencing runs shall be completed and delivered no later than 45 days following sample submission.
