NASA's Commercial Crew Initiative Request For Information (RFI).
The forum is scheduled for 0900 to 1130 on Thursday, August 19 at
NASA Headquarters, 300 E St. SW, Washington.
The RFI, issued on May 21, collected information from industry
to help NASA plan the overall strategy for the development and
demonstration of a commercial crew transport capability and to
receive comments on NASA human-rating technical requirements.
The August. 19 forum will include discussion about how NASA is
addressing the common themes in the responses and presentations on
the availability of agency facilities and the availability of
service arrangements for commercial providers. NASA managers also
will participate in a question-and-answer session.
