technology globeThe STMD Strategic Analysis Support team provides strategic analysis and integration support to the leadership of the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD).

The current focus of the team is on:

  1. Reframing STMD’s strategy to focus their investment prioritization and communication on impacts, outcomes, and challenges first, and on technologies and systems second
  2. Revising STMD’s portfolio formulation process to be driven by the reframed strategy and increase the traceability of decisions
  3. Providing integration across customer needs to identify high-impact, cross-cutting technologies, quantify/qualify the value of technology options, and identify investment/schedule gaps

This SMAB capability will result in a more strategic, higher-impact space technology portfolio that advances U.S. commercial space, science, and human exploration activities.
