Space Act Awards were presented to current and former members of the Mobility and Robotics Systems Section, for contributions to technology and flight missions.

The NASA Space Act Awards were set up by the Space Act of 1958 to reward outstanding scientific or technical contributions sponsored, adopted, or used by NASA which contribute significantly to aeronautics and space activities. The Board Awards, where were evaluated by NASAs Inventions and Contributions Board, are the most prestigious of the NASA Space Act Awards.
