Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) announce a partnership to support research in critical enabling technologies which will determine whether Space Solar Power (SSP) can someday become a viable cost-competitive technology for supplying large-scale base-load electric power worldwide. The solicitation emphasizes (but is not restricted to) four special priority areas: wireless power transmission, computational intelligence for teleautonomous robotic assembly, environmental implications, and power management and distribution.
