This notice is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in FAR Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; offers are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued.

NASA's Venus Science Project is developing battery technologies to support the LLISSE Venus surface mission. The goal is to eventually deliver Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6 hardware for their Preliminary Design Reviews. The technical objective for batteries is to meet the performance requirements of the energy storage system for the High-Temperature Tolerant Batteries (HTTBs) For Long-Lived In-situ Solar System Explorer (LLISSE) Venus surface probe. NASA is developing high temperature rechargeable battery technology to meet Venusian surface probe needs, focusing on improving safety, low self-discharge, high specific energy, and high energy density. This work will culminate in battery-level demonstrations at TRL 6 with candidate designs and performance predictions for battery systems tailored for the LLISSE surface probe.


All responsible sources may submit an offer which shall be considered by the agency.


Delivery is to NASA GRC. Delivery shall be FOB Destination.


Offers for the items(s) described above are due by 10/31/2017 to jason.r.siewert@nasa.gov and must include, solicitation number, FOB destination to this Center, proposed delivery schedule, discount/payment terms, warranty duration (if applicable), taxpayer identification number (TIN), identification of any special commercial terms, and be signed by an authorized company representative.
