B Workshops and Public Input WORKSHOPS Each technology roadmap was the subject of a public workshop at which the technology panels engaged with invited speakers, guests, and members of the public in a dialogue on the technology areas and their value to NASA. As shown in the workshop schedule below, most panels held a series of workshops on consecutive days in the same location. More detailed information on each workshop, including a complete agenda and copies of many presentations, can be viewed at Panel 1: Propulsion and Power Workshops at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California: TA03 Space Power and Energy Storage Systems March 21, 2011 TA02 In-Space Propulsion Technologies March 22, 2011 TA01 Launch Propulsion Systems March 23, 2011 TA13 Ground and Launch Systems Processing March 24, 2011 Panel 2: Robotics, Communications, and Navigation Workshops at the Keck Center of the National Academies, Washington, D.C.: TA05 Communication and Navigation Systems March 29, 2011 TA04 Robotics, TeleRobotics, and Autonomous Systems March 30, 2011 Panel 3: Instruments and Computing Workshop at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center, Irvine, California: TA08 Scientific Instruments, Observatories, March 29, 2011 and Sensor Systems Workshop at the Keck Center of the National Academies, Washington, D.C.: TA011 Modeling, Simulation, Information Technology, May 10, 2011 and Data Processing Panel 4: Human Health and Surface Exploration Workshops at the Lunar and Planetary Institute, Houston, Texas: 37

This input used the criteria that the steering committee established (such as benefit, risk and reasonableness, and alignment with NASA and national goals).1 The individuals providing this input included 91 personnel from NASA (including the Jet Propulsion Laboratory), 6 from other government organizations, 26 from industry, 16 from academia, and 5 from other organizations or no organization at all. The data included in the public input forms can be found at In addition, 87 sets of general comments were received via e-mail from 7 individuals who completed the public input forms noted above and from 68 individuals who did not. These individuals included 47 personnel from NASA (including the Jet Propulsion Laboratory), 1 from another government agency, 7 from industry, 4 from academia, 5 from other organizations, and 11 whose organization is not known. 1 More information on the evaluation criteria, ranking process, and scores for each technology will appear in the final report. 38
