[FR Doc. 2016–19614 Filed 8–16–16; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4510–CH–P NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION Notice of Centennial Challenges Space Robotics Challenge National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). NOTICE: (16–056). ACTION: Notice of Centennial Challenges Space Robotics Challenge. AGENCY: This notice is issued in accordance with 51 U.S.C. 20144(c). The Space Robotics Challenge is open and teams that wish to compete may now register. Centennial Challenges is a program of prize competitions to stimulate innovation in technologies of interest and value to NASA and the nation. The Space Robotics Challenge is a prize competition with a $1,000,000 total prize purse to be divided among teams that develop software to increase the autonomy of dexterous humanoid robots. Teams will use software to control a simulated R5 to resolve problems in a virtual environment. NASA is providing the prize purse. Space Center Houston in partnership with Nine Sigma will manage the challenge. SUMMARY: Challenge registration opens August 16, 2016 and will remain open until September 16, 2016. Other important dates: September 19, 2016—Qualification Software version 1 November 15, 2016—Qualification Deadline December 1, 2016—Qualification Results Announced June 13–16, 2017—Virtual Competition ADDRESSES: The Space Robotics Challenge is a virtual competition. The qualification rounds will take place at participant labs and the final mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:38 Aug 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 competition will take place at Space Center Houston/Johnson Space Center.

General questions and comments regarding the program should be addressed to Monsi Roman, Centennial Challenges Program, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center Huntsville, AL 35812. Email address: hq-stmdcentennialchallenges@mail.nasa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: II. Eligibility Summary Agency: DOL–OWCP. Title of Collection: Death Gratuity. OMB Control Number: 1240–0017. Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Total Estimated Number of Respondents: 262. Total Estimated Number of Responses: 262. Total Estimated Annual Time Burden: 67 hours. Total Estimated Annual Other Costs Burden: $0. The complete rules for the Space Robotics Challenge can be found at: www.spaceroboticschallenge.com. The following virtual challenge scenario serves as a backdrop for developing coding advancements that enable the autonomy of humanoid robotics: In the not too distant future, R5 as arrived on Mars along with supplies ahead of a human mission. Overnight a dust storm damaged the habitat and solar array, and caused the primary communication antenna to become misaligned. R5 must now repair an air leak in the habitat, deploy a new solar panel, and align the communication antenna. Teams will use software to control a simulated R5 in order to resolve the problems caused by the dust storm. Each team will be evaluated according to a scoring metric that considers the number of tasks completed and the time required to complete the tasks. The competition arena will contain a rover, solar panels, communication dish, and a habitat on a Martian plain. Each component will be within eyesight and walking distance of each other. Practice environments, similar to those used in the final competition, will be provided to teams. I. Prize Amounts The total Space Robotics prize purse is $1,000,000 (one million U.S. dollars). $100,000 Engagement Challenge $300,000 Qualifying round (The top 20 qualifying teams will receive $15,000 each) $600,000 Virtual Competition with prizes as follows: First place: $125,000 Second place: $100,000 Third Place: $50,000 Fourth Place: $25,000 $50,000 bonus prizes awarded to as many as 6 teams PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 To be eligible to win a prize, competitors must; (1) Register and comply with all requirements in the rules and Team Agreement; (2) In the case of a private entity, shall be incorporated in and maintain a primary place of business in the United States, and in the case of an individual, whether participating singly or in a group, shall be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States; and (3) Not be a Federal entity or Federal employee acting within the scope of their employment.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mark D. Notich, Office of New Reactors, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555–0001; telephone: 301–415–3053; email: Mark.Notich@ nrc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background On September 24, 2014 (79 FR 57141), the NRC published for public comment the proposed revisions to Chapter 13 of the SRP. A summary of the comments and the NRC staff’s disposition of the comments are available in a separate document, ‘‘Public Comment Response Table SRP Section 13.1.1 through 13.5.1.1’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML15008A024). The Office of New Reactors is revising these sections from their current versions. Details of specific changes in the proposed revisions are included at the end of each of the proposed sections. The changes to this SRP chapter reflect NRC staff’s current review methods and practices based on lessons learned from the NRC’s reviews of design certification and combined license applications completed since the last revision of this chapter. II. Backfitting and Issue Finality Issuance of these revised SRP sections does not constitute backfitting as defined in § 50.109 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Backfitting,’’ (the Backfit rule) or otherwise be inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. The NRC’s position is based upon the following considerations: PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1. The SRP positions would not constitute backfitting, inasmuch as the SRP is internal guidance directed at the NRC staff with respect to their regulatory responsibilities. The SRP provides guidance to the NRC staff on how to review an application for NRC’s regulatory approval in the form of licensing. Changes in internal staff guidance are not matters for which either nuclear power plant applicants or licensees are protected under either the Backfit Rule or the issue finality provisions of 10 CFR part 52. 2. The NRC staff has no intention to impose the SRP positions on existing licensees either now or in the future. The staff does not intend to impose or apply the positions described in the SRP to existing (already issued) licenses and regulatory approvals. Therefore, the issuance of a final SRP—even if considered guidance that is within the purview of the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52—need not be evaluated as if it were a backfit or as being inconsistent with issue finality provisions. If, in the future, the staff seeks to impose a position in the SRP on holders of already issued licenses in a manner which does not provide issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision, then the staff must make the showing as set forth in the Backfit Rule or address the criteria for avoiding issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision. 3. Backfitting and issue finality do not—with limited exceptions not applicable here—protect current or future applicants. Applicants and potential applicants are not, with certain exceptions, protected by either the Backfit Rule or any issue finality provisions under 10 CFR part 52. This is because neither the Backfit Rule nor the issue finality provisions under 10 CFR part 52—with certain exclusions discussed in the next paragraph—were intended to apply to every NRC action that substantially changes the expectations of current and future applicants. The exceptions to the general principle are applicable whenever an applicant references a 10 CFR part 52 license (e.g., an early site permit) and/ or NRC regulatory approval (e.g., a design certification rule) with specified issue finality provisions. The staff does not, at this time, intend to impose the positions represented in the SRP in a manner that is inconsistent with any issue finality provisions. If, in the future, the staff seeks to impose a position in the SRP in a manner that does not provide issue finality as E:\FR\FM\17AUN1.SGM 17AUN1
