NASA Means Business 2001 Mission Control



NASA and the Texas Space Grant Consortium (TSGC) are pleased to announce the NASA Means Business Student Competition 2001 program (NMB '01).

WE INVITE YOU to compete for a chance to make a real contribution in support of the exploration of Mars!

If selected, you and your teammates will help NASA chart the emerging common ground between the business world and the space program by developing a framework for integrating NASA "Customer Engagement" processes into real space mission planning.

From all proposals received, up to six Finalist teams will be selected to develop "Customer Engagement Architecture User Requirements" for NASA's newly announced proposed missions to Mars over the next two decades.

Then, in the Spring of 2001, representatives from your team will attend the Third Annual NASA Customer Engagement Conference at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. This conference will be a forum for:

  • Presenting your team's work;
  • Interacting with leading NASA, industry and university community "customer engagement" professionals;
  • Receiving status reports on the progress of exploration missions and programs; and
  • Receiving updates on new systems, technologies and approaches to the exploration of Mars.

NASA plans to incorporate innovations from the work of the Finalist teams into its emerging Customer Engagement Mission Architecture and evaluate them against other leading concepts.

All six Finalist teams will receive cash awards of $1,000, travel grants to the Johnson Space Center for the conference, and recognition for their contributions to NASA's plans to explore the Red Planet. In addition, an overall "Grand Prize" Recipient will be selected and announced at the Conference.
