International Engagement & Partnerships:Building on the Past, Boldly Collaborating for the FutureGoddard Memorial Symposium

28 Mar 2012

Dr. John Olson

Director, Strategic Analysis & Integration Division

Human Exploration & Operations Mission Directorate

NASA Headquarters

Cornerstone of exploration the international space station
Cornerstone of Exploration: The International Space Station

  • Scientific Laboratory • Technology Test Bed • Orbiting Outpost • Galactic Observatory

  • New Approach: CASIS

Sustain Human Health and Performance • Ensure Systems Readiness •

Validate Operational Procedures

International space station research and technology applications demo testbed
International Space Station:Research and Technology Applications & Demo Testbed

1,200 experiments supporting 1,600 scientists in 63 counties

Observing Planet Earth:

Documenting global change and geographic events; aiding in disaster relief

Improving Life Support: 70-80% water and air recycling on ISS

Improving Zero-G Health:

Bone loss prevention through exercise and space medicine

  • Leveraging a Materials Testbed:Improving satellite component development and spacecraft design

  • Teaching 30+ million students from ISS: Students participate in downlinks and interactive experiments with ISS astronauts

ISS Research and Developmental Technologies: Closed-loop life support • Advanced monitoring & control • In-space assembly • Maintainability • supportability and logistics • Solar panels and batteries • EVA technologies • Automated systems • Exercise systems • Medical care • Food systems

A history of collaboration and cooperation iss as a stepping stone for deep space exploration
A History of Collaboration and Cooperation: ISS as a Stepping-Stone for Deep-Space Exploration

International Cooperation = Vital

International space exploration coordination group isecg terms of reference
International Space Exploration Coordination Group: ISECGTerms of Reference

  • Work collectively in a non-binding, consensus-driven manner toward advancing the Global Exploration Strategy

    • Provide a forum for discussion of interests, objectives and plans

    • Provide a forum for development of conceptual products

    • Enable the multilateral or bilateral partnerships necessary to accomplish complex exploration missions

    • Promote interest and engagement in space exploration among citizens and society

  • ISECG operating principles

    • Open and inclusive, flexible and evolutionary, effective, mutual interest

  • ISECG chairmanship rotates approximately once per year

The isecg global exploration roadmap
The ISECG Global Exploration Roadmap

  • The first iteration of the Global Exploration Roadmap (GER) was released by ISECG in September 2011

    • Second iteration planned end 2012/early 2013

  • The GER reflects the international effort to collaboratively define technically feasible and programmatically implementable exploration mission scenarios with the common goal of humans on the surface of Mars

    • Asteroid Next, Moon Next

  • GER serves as a non-binding reference for agencies to inform near-term decisions related to exploration preparatory activities

Next Steps

Near-term Focus on Guiding Capabilities, Technologies and Leveraging ISS

Long-term Focus is Discovery Driven and Enhanced by Emerging Technologies


Given their broad-based benefits, International Partnerships are essential.

The Global Exploration Roadmap is consistent with NASA’s Capability-Driven Framework for Human Space Exploration.
