NASA Seeks Space Technology Partners for the Moon and Near-Earth

NASA Seeks Space Technology Partners for the Moon and Near-Earth

NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) is looking for companies developing technology that can advance space exploration. Two new opportunities focus on technology development for space infrastructure and capabilities for the Moon and near-Earth space. The deadline to submit initial proposals is March 31, 2022. More info:
Eligibility requirements can be found in Section 3 of this PDF document:

Under the Tipping Point opportunity, NASA will award a total of up to $200 million to multiple companies using funded Space Act Agreements. The opportunity also includes incentives for small businesses, allowing companies with fewer than 500 employees to contribute less to the cost of the technology development.

More than half a billion dollars have been awarded to 50 projects since NASA announced the first Tipping Point opportunity in 2015. Space technologies advanced through this funding are now part of current and future mission plans.
