|SESSION DESCRIPTION: |
NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) is developing a Strategic Implementation Plan which incorporates inputs from the NASA technology roadmaps and provides a unified vision and strategic framework for space technology aimed at the next 25 years and beyond. STMD’s strategy continues to focus on high-impact technology investments that will enable transformative space technologies that
will serve future needs, produce demonstrable benefits, and leverage capability advances outside of, as well as within, traditional disciplines.
Analysis of global trends has led STMD to identify overarching drivers, referred to as Mega-Drivers, which will shape the development of space technology in the coming years: These Mega-Driver global trends will further influence how STMD will invest future resources as defined by six new Strategic Thrusts. Shaped by both the Agency strategic plan and
the tactical needs, these Strategic Thrusts constitute a vision for the future of space technology investments. This panel will unveil key aspects of the new draft Strategic Framework and solicit community feedback.
