(III.) RASC-AL Human Scale Architecture and Systems Competition


The RASC-AL Program is open to full-time undergraduate or graduate students majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics at an accredited U.S.-based university.  Multi-disciplinary teams are encouraged.

Foreign students or universities can participate only as team-members/collaborators with a U.S.-led Team.  Each team must contain, at a minimum, one faculty advisor affiliated with the U.S.-based university, and 2 students from the U.S.-based university who work on the project and present at the 2015 RASC-AL Forum.  Teams may include senior capstone students, clubs, multi-university teams, or multi-disciplinary teams. 
Team categories: Graduate and Undergraduate 

Special Note:  If the team includes ANY graduate team members, team must enter in the Graduate division.

University design teams MUST include:


NASA is embracing new paradigms in exploration that involve expanding our knowledge and leveraging resources as we extend our presence into the solar system. The 2015 RASC-AL themes are looking for innovations in crafting NASA exploration approaches and strategies as they relate to extending humanity’s reach beyond low Earth Orbit (LEO). These themes encompass timespans that range from near term robotic missions to 40 years into the future. Space pioneering and prospecting towards Earth independence is necessary to achieve NASA’s goal of extending humanity’s reach into space. Collaboration with commercial and international partners will be required to enable this vision. 
Within each theme, teams will select one or more enabling design elements to validate - either through detailed analysis or proto-type development. 

  1. Interested teams are strongly encouraged to submit an online Notice of Intentform by the rolling deadline of November 3rd, 2014.   
  2. Teams must submit an abstract (electronic upload) by the January 11th deadline. The RASC-AL Steering Committee will review each team's abstract and announce the finalists by February 1st, 2015.
  3. Selected teams will fully develop their proposed solution to the design challenge and present to NASA and industry experts at the 2015 RASC-AL Forum June 14-17, 2015.
