To meet the objectives of the Vision for Space Exploration (VSE),
NASA must develop a wide array of enabling technologies. For this

provides an assessment of each of the 22 projects including a

with the VSE. To the extent possible, the identification and
discussion of various cross-cutting issues are also presented.
Those issues will be explored and discussed in more detail in the
