NASA TechLeap Universal Payload Interface Challenge

January 10, 2024


Join this month’s Community of Practice to hear about the NASA TechLeap Universal Payload Interface Challenge. To change the pace of space by moving technologies into flight testing and between different flight environments as quickly as possible, NASA’s Flight Opportunities program is asking businesses, academic institutions, entrepreneurs, and other innovators to develop a flight-ready universal payload interface for its third NASA TechLeap Prize. A maximum of three winners will receive up to $650,000 each to build their system plus the opportunity to flight test it at no cost. Representatives from Flight Opportunities and Carrot, the organization that administers the challenge, will provide an overview and answer questions. Check out our FAQs in advance.
