NASA’s Flight Opportunities Program Selects 21 Additional Space Technology Payloads | Parabolic Arc | Charter flight information | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON (NASA PR)–NASA has selected 21 space technology payloads for flights on commercial reusable launch vehicles, balloons, and a commercial parabolic aircraft.

 

This latest selection represents the sixth cycle of NASA’s continuing call for payloads through an announcement of opportunity. More than 100 technologies with test flights now have been facilitated through NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate’s Flight Opportunities Program.

 

“This new group of payloads, ranging from systems that support cubesats to new sensors technology for planetary exploration, represent the sorts of cutting-edge technologies that are naturally suited for testing during returnable flights to near-space,” said Michael Gazarik, NASA’s associate administrator for space technology in Washington. “NASA’s Flight Opportunities Program continues to mature this key technology development pipeline link, thanks to America’s commercial suborbital reusable vehicles providers.”
