[image-62][image-78][image-94]Strategic Integration developed and manages NASA's Technology Portfolio System (TechPort) - an integrated, Agency-wide software system designed to capture, track, and manage NASA's portfolio of technology investments. TechPort provides detailed information on individual technology programs and projects throughout NASA.
TechPort is equipped with features that allow users to efficiently search and browse technology projects, identify technology gaps, and provide comprehensive technology reports. TechPort is now available to NASA civil servant and contractor employees who log in from a nasa.gov domain. NASA is offering the public the opportunity to give this beta system a trial run and then provide feedback. After six months, NASA will collect ideas on how TechPort can better serve the users’ needs. Users’ input will enhance the system design and type of information provided in future versions. To access TechPort, go to http://techport.nasa.gov.
TechPort's Main Objectives:
- Provide the capability to search and share NASA technology information.
- Provide the Agency with tools to analyze the technology portfolio, make decisions about future investments, and generate reports quickly.
- Enhance the ability to identify prospective technology development partners.
- Provide NASA Centers, Programs, and Projects the capability to dynamically capture information and manage their technology.
The NASA Strategic Space Technology Investment Plan describes how TechPort also helps NASA achieve one of the technology investment goals inspired by the National Research Council's recommendations: "NASA will reach out to the public and share information about its technology investments."
