Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that NASA has released a solicitation titled “Early Stage Innovations (ESI)”, on May 2, 2018. This solicitation, available on NSPIRES, is an Appendix to the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) NASA Research Announcement (NRA), titled “Space Technology Research, Development, Demonstration, and Infusion 2018 (SpaceTech-REDDI-2018).”

The Appendix seeks proposals from accredited U.S. universities for innovative, early-stage space technology research. ESI is intended to accelerate the development of groundbreaking, high-risk/high-payoff space technologies to support high priority future space science and exploration needs of NASA, other government agencies, and the commercial space sector. The total ESI award value is up to $500,000. Research and development efforts will take place over three years, based on the merit of proposals and availability of funds.

Only accredited U.S. universities are eligible to submit proposals to this solicitation, and teaming is permitted.  The PI must be either a tenured faculty member or an untenured faculty member on the tenure track from the proposing university.  Industry and non-profit entities are permitted to partner; other government agencies and non-NASA FFRDCs are permitted to collaborate; and Co-Investigators (Co-I), postdoctoral associates, consultants, and collaborators are permitted.  Please see the Appendix for the complete set of eligibility requirements and restrictions.

This Appendix exclusively seeks proposals that are responsive to one of the six topics described:

Modeling for Small Spacecraft Electric Propulsion

The goal of this topic is to advance modeling techniques and simulation capabilities to assist in maturing electric propulsion (EP) system technologies for small spacecraft.

Smart and Autonomous Systems for Space

The goal of this topic is to promote fundamental research into Intelligent Physical Systems (IPS) for future NASA exploration missions. IPS are habitats, robots, spacecraft, and surface systems that operate in the physical world with little (or no) supervision by humans for extended periods of time.

Omni-Optical Antennas and Optical-Multiple-Access Technologies for Free-Space Near-Earth Satellite Communication

The objective of this topic is to develop innovative ideas and creative technology concepts to contribute to future satellite optical omni-directional antenna and Optical-Multiple-Access capabilities.

Modeling Shock Layer Radiation and Chemical Kinetics for Planetary Entry

Should you or your associates desire to contact the ESI Team with any questions, please direct your correspondence/inquiries to hq-esi-call@mail.nasa.gov.

Solicitation Open for Intelligent Cognitive Assistants Proposals
Deadline: June 4, 2018

Program Overview
Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) is soliciting proposals in the area of Intelligent Cognitive Assistants (ICA).  The ICA program will provide supplemental funding* to the Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier: Advancing Cognitive and Physical Capabilities (FW-HTF) program offered by the National Science Foundation.  At the bottom of this page is a description of the goals for this program and the research topics of interest.

After becoming familiar with the description of desired research, if you wish to submit a proposal, first submit your proposal to NSF, and then follow these steps to submit the same proposal to SRC. In summary:

  1. Submit your proposal to NSF, and save the PDF file that you receive from NSF FastLane. (letter of intent due to NSF by April 16 and full proposal is due by June 4, 2018)
  2. Obtain a proposal ID from SRC (this will be different from the NSF proposal ID).
  3. Generate a cover page for your proposal.
  4. Prepare your proposal by creating a PDF file with the signed SRC proposal cover page incorporated with the NSF proposal as submitted.
  5. Upload your completed SRC proposal PDF

Research Overview

The program goals, future applications, and research space for the Intelligent Cognitive Assistant (ICA) initiative are vast, from production to social life.  Enhancing human physico-cognitive capabilities, while respecting social, ethical and legal concerns, is a main goal.  The ICA program is focused on creating the foundations for holistic artificial intelligence for supporting physical and cognitive human activities, creating modular ICA system architectures and devices enabling scalability and adaptability, and improving the human-intelligent machine interface. This will be achieved with a wide range of domain expertise and should revolve around the common themes from the ICA workshop. The detailed research needs can be found in the ICA workshop report.
https://www.src.org/program/ica/research-needs/ica-research-needs-20180207.pdf

 Research Themes

  1. Contextual knowledge: Contextual knowledge is the key to aggregating the ever-growing volume of stimuli and limiting feedback to the user. Contextual knowledge is also temporal meaning context can change quickly over time. Need to develop a common ‘world model’ of knowledge.
  2. Holistic AI: Cognitive AI must have a combination of long-term, machine learning and fast, one-shot learning. Future “Holistic AI” systems will combine different reasoning and learning methods with end-to-end intelligence.
  3. Social Science: Humans are complex, emotional, and dynamic; any future Intelligent Agent will need to be adaptable to a given user. Enhancing human physico-cognitive capabilities, while respecting social, ethical and legal concerns, is a main goal.
  4. Natural Human-ICA Interaction: Future human-computer interaction needs to be seamless, comfortable, empathic, trustworthy, and transparent. New paradigms are need beyond screen and keyboards. Humans should be able to query and modify future Intelligent Agents.
  5. Edge Processing: Future Intelligent Agents will need to do much more locally, which requires significant improvements in low power, edge processing. New computing architectures will be needed. User context and knowledge will need to stay local to ensure privacy concerns.

(*) Contingent of sufficient interest of the proposed research suitable to SRC membership agreements

For more information regarding the funding opportunity please contact Leslie Faiers at 1 (919) 941-9455.
