NASA has opened a pilot Entrepreneurs Challenge to invite fresh ideas and new participants in supporting development of new instruments and technologies to advance the agency’s science exploration goals.

The agency’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) is seeking novel ideas reflective of those currently trending in the commercial sector – particularly in areas such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, autonomy, robotics and advanced sensors.

White paper submissions are due Friday, June 26, with the challenge event to be held July 29. To learn more about the Entrepreneurs Challenge and to apply, go to
