Technology Strategic Planning and Analysis
Strategic Integration Activities
Strategic Integration develops policy, requirements, and Agency strategy for NASA’s technology development activities, including the NASA Strategic Space Technology Investment Plan (NASA SSTIP)
and the Space Technology Roadmaps
Strategic Integration routinely analyzes and assesses NASA’s space technology portfolio. Strategic Integration provides different ways of looking at the portfolio as a whole, to help the Office of the Chief Technologist and the Agency understand the current state of NASA’s technology portfolio. Strategic Integration also does targeted analyses into specific technology areas to support budget planning and requests.
Technology Portfolio Tracking
Strategic Integration documents and tracks NASA’s technology investments, comparing the portfolio against the strategic plan and working with stakeholders through NTEC to make appropriate adjustments. Strategic Integration ensures that information about NASA’s technology investments are openly available and accessible to the Agency. Strategic Integration encourages the use of NASA-developed technology in future NASA missions and supports NASA activities that document and communicate the societal impact of NASA technology investments.

NASA Technology Councils
Strategic Integration performs an Agency-level technology coordination role to assist NASA in meeting mission requirements while filling technology gaps, anticipating future needs, and avoiding duplication of effort. To facilitate technology coordination, Strategic Integration manages the execution of the NASA Technology Executive Council (NTEC) and Center Technology Council (CTC), both designed to ensure full-Agency participation in technology planning and decision-making activities.
