Excerpt
Summary: The National Research Council?s (NRC?s) Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board (ASEB) was asked by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration?s (NASA?s) Office of Space Flight to convene a series of workshops on technology policy issues related to the interrelationship between government, industry, and other stakeholders in advancing human and robotic exploration and development of space (see Chapter 2 for more detailed information on the policy context and planning of the workshop). By design, the first workshop focused on policy issues concerning the development and demonstration of space technologies, specifically those related to a proposed new framework for space technology and systems development Advanced Systems, Technologies, Research, and Analysis (ASTRA) for Future Space Flight Capabilities. The rationale, from the perspective of different stakeholders, for the long-term cultivation of advanced space systems was also a main topic. In addition to a discussion of the ASTRA framework, the steering committee chose to focus on four policy topics during the first workshop the rationale for human and robotic space exploration, technology as a driver for capability transformation, risk mitigation and perception, and international cooperation and competition. While other policy issues are also important to the formulation of a space exploration technology program, the steering committee felt these were topics that needed to be discussed in further detail in relation to the proposed ASTRA framework. The sections below set forth the main points from each panel discussion and provide a summary of the ASTRA framework. Each of these sections is discussed in further detail in the chapters which follow. The committee chose to present the material in the order of discussion at the...
