EXAMPLE CASIS FEASIBILITY REVIEW FORM
In the summer of 2011, NASA selected CASIS, a nonprofit organization, to maximize use of the International
Space Station U.S. National Laboratory for improving life on Earth. While NASA continues to support ISS research
to advance space exploration goals, the ISS National Lab space managed by CASIS is focused on research and
technology development with ground benefits: exploiting the space environment to advance basic science and
translational research with commercial application for the improvement of life on Earth. CASIS facilitates use of
the ISS National Lab by non-NASA U.S. government agencies and by academic and private institutions, providing
access to the laboratory’s permanent microgravity setting and vantage point in low Earth orbit as well as the
varied environments of space.
The form included below is an example of the CASIS Feasibility Review Form and is not for submission. All
CASIS Feasibility Review Forms must be submitted through the CASIS website. Please complete the online
form to complete the submission process. All fields are required unless marked as “optional.” Do not include
confidential or proprietary information.
Note: Non-U.S. entities must have a U.S.-based partner to submit a CASIS Feasibility Review Form. CASIS
cannot consider projects using only non-U.S. sponsorship.
I. GENERAL INFORMATION
Clearly state the hypothesis. If the project is hardware development or technology
demonstration, a short statement of objective is appropriate.
