Rough Order of Magnitude

The Rapid Spacecraft Development Office (RSDO) can help you identify candidate spacecraft from the Rapid Spacecraft Acquisition IV (Rapid IV) Catalog. Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) price estimates for spacecraft are only available from the vendors via Requests for Information (RFIs) or spacecraft study Requests for Offer (RFOs). The RFI process takes about 2 months to complete, assuming the customer's requirements are defined and documented. Please complete the Mission Requirements Form and forward the form to the RSDO.

  1. Download the template, and "SAVE-AS" the name of "YOUR" mission.
  2. Open the document in Word, and type in as much of the requested information as possible.
  3. Save your document.
  4. Email the document as an attachment to RSDO.

If you have any question, please feel free to contact us at 301-286-0429.
