About NASA's Technology Demonstration Missions (TDM)

Bridging the gap. That's the mission of NASA's Technology Demonstration Missions, or TDM: to bridge the gap between need and means, between advanced technologies and flight-qualified systems, between early proof-of-concept tests and the final infusion of cost-effective, revolutionary new technologies into successful NASA, government and commercial space missions.

The TDM program focuses on crosscutting technologies with strong customer interest that meet the needs of NASA and industry by enabling new missions or greatly enhancing existing ones. Chosen technologies will be thoroughly ground-tested and flight-tested -- reducing risks to future flight missions, gaining operational heritage and continuing NASA’s long history as a technological leader. These newly proven technologies will enable future NASA missions to pursue bolder goals; make human missions safer and more rewarding; and enable new expansion of space industry in the government and commercial sectors.

The Technology Demonstration Missions Program Office at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., is overseeing a portfolio of technology demonstration flight projects led by NASA centers and industry partners across the country. The program is part of NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate in Washington.
