2021 University Consortium Research Opportunity (UCRO 1.0)

Research Topics

The following critical research areas were included in the University Consortium Research Opportunity 1.0 solicitation announcement. Institutions are currently exploring these topic areas and pursuing innovative solutions.

The recent explosive growth in the satellite and launch industries has led to a corresponding increase in microgravity processing interest and opportunities (e.g. Virgin Galactic, Space Station commercial opportunities, etc.). A host of commercial entities are now actively exploring uses of the microgravity environment in near-Earth orbit for commercial product applications, many of which have joint military applications. This topic will explore both potential dual use commercial/military microgravity products, as well as the fundamental science underpinning the microgravity processing environment.
