NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) is hereby soliciting information about potential sources for the Thermal Protection System (TPS) Production for Mars Sample Return (MSR). This potential procurement is to pursue highly reliable sample return missions that require an Earth Entry Vehicle (EEV) that will use robotic systems and a Mars ascent rocket to collect and send samples of martian rocks, soils, and atmosphere to Earth for detailed chemical and physical analysis. The EEV will use robust thermal protection system materials with substantial ground and flight test heritage in order to preserve the integrity of the returned samples.
