Biennial "Call for Ideas"

Every other year the Multimission Ground Systems and Services Office (MGSS) solicits ideas for evolving and improving NASA’s Advanced Multimission Operations System (AMMOS).  The AMMOS provides multimission ground system tools and services that enable mission customers to operate at a lower total cost to NASA while providing broad-ranging capability, high reliability, and outstanding performance.  This “Call for Ideas” (CFI) is an opportunity for any member of the NASA mission operations community to suggest implementations or operations-focused technology efforts that will increase the usefulness of the AMMOS to its project customers.
NASA organizations that submit specific ideas that are later incorporated into the AMMOS future plans are offered the opportunity to implement those ideas. Once the capability has been implemented and added to the AMMOS catalog, the implementing organization will maintain the capability and provide the engineering needed to adapt the capability for use by AMMOS customers.
