Sharing NASA technology expands the frontiers of knowledge and capabilities in aeronautics, science, and space exploration, and creates opportunities for U.S. industry and academia. By making technology development information available to the public—in an easy-to-find and practical way—NASA fuels entrepreneurship, innovation and scientific discovery. Through this system, our corporate and university partners can access information about novel technologies across all NASA centers and use it to identify possible opportunities for collaboration and technology advancement.
For NASA users, TechPort enables comprehensive technology portfolio strategy development, investment prioritization, and decision-making. Technologists can compare existing NASA investments with future technology needs in order to effectively prioritize new projects.
TechPort contains a wealth of information about each technology development effort including a detailed description, the anticipated benefits, the locations and organizations performing the work and points of contact. Many technology project entries also provide additional detail in the form of images, published papers, journal articles, infusion stories and news articles.
How can I partner with NASA to develop technology?
