Concours désormais ajouté aux marque-pages !


NASA, the beacon of space exploration, aeronautics and science research, and cutting-edge technical innovation, is embarking on a thrilling new quest, and they are asking for your help! We are asking you to uncover new emerging technologies and groundbreaking research work from around the globe. We are reaching out to the brightest minds to help them research and investigate three specific areas of interest:
Safety in Advanced Air Mobility Vehicles
Innovative Lightweight Protection against Galactic Cosmic Rays
Revolutionary Sensors for Atmospheric Characterization
This is your opportunity to help NASA and be recognized for it! Dive deep, explore, and present to us the marvels that organizations and independent researchers worldwide are achieving in these three technical areas. Remember, while NASA sometimes is seen as the initiator of new technologies, in this case, they are seeking innovations that are found outside of NASA's existing research. Do not send entries that highlight any of NASA’s current work, however, entries that identify technologies that complement NASA’s current work are acceptable.

Background and Topics of Interest:

1. Safety in Advanced Air Mobility Vehicles
The skies of tomorrow beckon with promises of new horizons. NASA's Advanced Air Mobility initiative aims to redefine aviation, connecting places previously untouched by conventional air travel. This new age of aviation demands paramount safety - from safeguarding pilots and passengers to ensuring robust vehicle tracking systems. We're looking for innovations that encompass novel technologies, the synergy between humans and automation, and advanced health monitoring systems.
Specific subtopics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Structural health and vehicle safety monitoring.
Operational safety for Advanced Air Mobility.
Advanced Air Mobility Innovations: technology, human-autonomy, and passenger health.
2. Innovative Lightweight Protection from Galactic Cosmic Rays
When venturing beyond Earth, astronauts confront the vast, mysterious expanse of space, teeming with radiation. Galactic cosmic rays, particles from solar flares, and those trapped in Earth's magnetic field pose significant challenges. The stakes? Potential health risks, including cancer and degenerative diseases. As we prepare to set foot on distant worlds like Mars or establish habitats on the Moon, the need for lightweight, effective protection against these cosmic rays becomes paramount. We're in search of solutions that not only shield against these rays but also consider the challenges of long-duration space travel and extraterrestrial stays.
Specific subtopics of interest for these lightweight Galactic Cosmic Ray protections include, but are not limited to:
Long-term habitats on the Moon
Long-term habitats on Mars
Dormancy (this is defined as the time in transit to and from extraterrestrial bodies)
Habitats on other planets, asteroids, comets, or other extraterrestrial bodies
3. Revolutionary Sensors for Atmospheric Characterization
The atmosphere, a dynamic canvas of mysteries, holds secrets waiting to be unraveled. NASA is on the lookout for cutting-edge sensors that can elevate our understanding of this vast expanse. Whether it's on Earth or distant planets, atmospheric characterization is crucial. NASA is interested in sensor technologies that harness the power of quantum sensing, metamaterials, freeform optics, and advanced detector technologies. If you're working on a fusion of these technologies, we're even more intrigued!
Specific subtopics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Quantum sensing
Metamaterials, including metasurfaces
Freeform optics
Advanced detector technologies, and other advanced technologies
Combinations of these technologies
Join us in this exhilarating journey, and let's together push the boundaries of what's possible, crafting a brighter future for humanity both on Earth and beyond.
