Coming Soon: NASA TechFlights 2022

Flight Opportunities anticipates the release of the 2022 TechFlights solicitation in early May 2022. This year, TechFlights will offer up to $750,000 per awardee to researchers from U.S.-based industry, academia, and private research institutions to rapidly test promising technologies on commercial flight vehicles. In addition to flight testing with commercial suborbital flight providers, this year Flight Opportunities is joined by NASA’s Small Spacecraft Technology program to provide flight tests on orbital platforms as well. Awardees will receive a grant or cooperative agreement allowing them to purchase flights directly from any eligible U.S. commercial flight provider that best suits their technology demonstration. 
Prepare now for the solicitation
