The Value of Space-Based Research

Navigant was featured in an article by CASIS regarding Americans’ perception of ISS R&D

In an article for the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), Navigant was lauded for its role in studying the value of space-based research and development (R&D).

CASIS, the nonprofit that manages the International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory, uses a proprietary Navigant methodology to continually investigate the value of ISS-based R&D and to quantify outcomes.

“With the help of Navigant, a consulting company that specializes in identifying, creating, and managing value in businesses of all kinds, CASIS embarked on a initiative to better understand and characterize the value and impact of the ISS National Lab research portfolio using the methodology,” said CASIS.

In short, according to CASIS, “it means selecting projects and programs that are delivering value to U.S. taxpayers—value that translates into tangible improvements for humankind and our planet.”

According to Navigant’s research, the projected value of ISS-based R&D projects includes incremental revenue of more than $900 million for sponsoring entities, a total addressable market of $110 billion, accelerated time to market, thousands of new jobs, and over 25 new solution pathways.
