Mapping NIAC Studies to NASA Technology Areas
Future U.S. leadership in space requires a foundation of sustained technology advances. This strong advanced technology development is needed to enhance technology readiness of new missions, mitigate technological risks, improve the quality of cost estimates and contribute to better overall mission costs. NASA has developed a set of Technology Areas (TA) to guide the development of space technologies.

Technology Areas
TA01: Launch Propulsion Systems
TA02: In-Space Propulsion Technologies
TA03: Space Power & Energy Storage
TA04: Robotics, Tele-Robotics and Autonomous Systems
TA05: Communication & Navigation
TA06: Human Health, Life Support & Habitation Systems
TA07: Human Exploration Destination Systems
TA08: Science Instruments, Observatories and Sensor Systems
TA09: Entry, Descent and Landing Systems
TA10: Nanotechnology
TA11: Modeling, Simulation, IT & Processing
TA12: Materials, Structures, Mechanical Systems & Manufacturing
TA13: Ground & Launch Systems Processing
TA14: Thermal Management Systems
TA15: Aeronautics
