The National Aeronautics and Space Administration overview, FY2006 budget in brief and key issues for Congress by Marcia S Smith ( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) conducts U.S. civilian space activities. For FY2006, NASA requested $16,456.3 million. Congress appropriated $16,456.8 million, $500,000 above the request, in the FY2006 Science, State, Justice, Commerce appropriations act (P.L. 109-108), subject to a 0.28% rescission in that act, and a 1% rescission in another appropriations act (P.L. 109-148). The latter act also adds $350 million for NASA for hurricane recovery. Congress passed a FY2007-2008 NASA authorization act (P.L. 109-155) that does not include FY2006 funding. This is the final edition of this report
Hubble Space Telescope NASA's plans for a servicing mission by Daniel Morgan ( Book )
6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) estimates that without a servicing mission to replace key components, the Hubble Space Telescope will cease scientific operations in 2008. In January 2004, the-NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe announced that the space shuttle would no longer be used to service Hubble. He indicated that this decision was based primarily on safety concerns in wake of the space shuttle Columbia accident in 2003. Many critics, however, saw it as the result of the new Vision for Space Exploration, announced by President Bush in January 2004, which focuses NASA's priorities on human and robotic exploration of the solar system. Hubble supporters sought to reverse the decision and proceed with a shuttle servicing mission. Michael Griffin, who became NASA Administrator in April 2005, stated that he would reassess whether to use the shuttle to service Hubble after there were two successful post-Columbia shuttle flights. The second post-Columbia flight took place successfully in July 2006. In October 2006, NASA approved a shuttle mission to service Hubble. That mission is now scheduled for October 8, 2008

Biometric identifiers and border security 9/11 Commission recommendations and related issues by Daniel Morgan ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In its final report, the 9/11 Commission concluded that funding and completing a "biometric entry-exit screening system" for travelers to and from the United States is essential to U.S. national security. The commission noted that the United States has built the first phase of a biometric screening system known as US-VISIT, and recommended that the "patchwork" of other border screening systems be consolidated with US-VISIT to serve as the basis for a single system to streamline border inspections. This report provides an overview of biometric technologies and the major U.S. biometric border screening systems, including US-VISIT, and discusses issues such as cost, performance, and user acceptance. Based in part upon the commission's recommendations, Congress included biometric provisions related to entry/exit control in the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (P.L. 108-458). This topic will probably continue to be of interest to the 109th Congress. This report will be updated as needed
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's FY2006 budget request description, analysis, and issues for Congress by Marcia S Smith ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For FY2006, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) requested 16.456 billion. That amount was a 2.4% increase over the 16.070 billion (adjusted for the rescission) appropriated in the FY2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act (P.L. 108-447). NASA also received a 126 million supplemental for damages caused by the 2004 Florida hurricanes, yielding a total of 16.196 billion for FY2005. The FY2006 request was 1.6% above that amount. By comparison, last year the White House projected that NASA's budget would increase by 4.7%. NASA submitted a FY2006 budget amendment on July 15; total funding for the agency did not change. The Administration included 324.8 million for NASA in the October 28, 2005 reallocation package that includes funds for hurricane relief. The House and Senate have passed the final version of the FY2006 Science, State, Justice, Commerce appropriations bill (H.R. 2862), which includes NASA. It approves 16,456.8 million (500,000 above the request), and is subject to a 0.28% across-the-board rescission. Congress also is debating a NASA authorization bill. The House-passed version (H.R. 3070) includes 510 million more than the request; the Senate-passed version (S. 1281) approves 100 million above the request. NASA is currently funded under a Continuing Resolution (P.L. 109-77). Congressional debate over NASA is centered on plans to implement the Vision for Space Exploration, announced by President Bush in January 2004. The Vision calls for NASA to return humans to the Moon by 2020, and someday send them to Mars. President Bush did not propose adding significant funding to NASA's five-year budget plan to implement the Vision. Instead, the agency must redirect funds from its other activities. NASA's resources are being strained by that decision, increased funding requirements for returning the space shuttle to flight status, cost growth in existing programs, and the need to fund congressionally-directed items. NASA Administrator Dr. Michael Griffin states repeatedly that NASA cannot afford all the programs on its plate, and priorities must be set. He also is changing the emphasis on some of the Vision-related activities. For example, he is accelerating development of a Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) to reduce an expected multi-year gap between when the space shuttle is to be terminated (2010) and the availability of the CEV. During that gap, the United States would not have its own ability to launch astronauts, and thus would be dependent on Russia for crew transportation to the International Space Station (ISS). To pay for accelerating the CEV, Dr. Griffin is reducing funding for other Vision-related activities such as developing nuclear power and propulsion systems (Project Prometheus) or performing research on ISS. NASA's FY2006 budget request also assumed a reduction of about 2,500 NASA civil servants by the beginning of FY2007. This report will be updated.

The DHS Directorate of Science and Technology : key issues for Congress by Dana A Shea ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Directorate of Science and Technology is the primary organization for research and development (R & D) in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). With an appropriated budget of $932.6 million in FY2009, it conducts R & D in several laboratories of its own and funds R & D conducted by other government agencies, the Department of Energy national laboratories, industry, and universities. The directorate consists primarily of six divisions: Chemical and Biological; Explosives; Command, Control, and Interoperability; Borders and Maritime Security; Infrastructure and Geophysical; and Human Factors. Additional offices have responsibilities, such as laboratory facilities and university programs, that cut across the divisions. The directorate is headed by the Under Secretary for Science and Technology
The Advanced Spectroscopic Portal program background and issues for Congress by Dana A Shea ( Book )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is charged with developing and procuring equipment to prevent a terrorist nuclear or radiological attack in the United States. At the forefront of DNDO's efforts are technologies currently deployed and under development whose purpose is to detect smuggled nuclear and radiological materials. These technologies include existing radiation portal monitors and next-generation replacements known as advanced spectroscopic portals (ASPs). Radiation portal monitors are used to detect radiation being emitted by conveyances, such as trucks, that are entering the United States. Combined with additional equipment to identify the source of the emitted radiation, they provide for a detection and identification capability to detect smuggled nuclear and radiological materials. The ASPs currently under testing integrate these detection and identification steps into a single process. By doing so, DHS aims to reduce the impact of such radiation screening on commerce while increasing its ability to detect illicit nuclear material
