Greetings everyone! As the Communication Director of NASA's Spinoff publication, I am thrilled to announce that the latest edition is now available for your reading pleasure! This year's Spinoff is truly special, as it features dozens of new and innovative technologies that have come from NASA's groundbreaking work that are now making a huge impact on our lives.
Technology Transfer Insights From our Team of Experts
Every year, the NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program releases new solicitations to identify and fund innovative technologies that address the agency's high-priority needs. The 2023 Phase 1 Solicitation is open, providing small businesses and non-profit research institutions the opportunity to submit their cutting-edge ideas for funding.
Have you ever thought about how your business could benefit from partnering with NASA? As a leading technological innovator, NASA has developed numerous advanced technologies for space exploration and other fields that could potentially give your business a competitive edge.
One of the best kept secrets in Cleveland and throughout Ohio is a NASA Center that dates back to the World War II era. The primary focus of NASA’s Glenn Research Center (GRC) was aircrafts to advance military capabilities.
Did you know that NASA offers free software that can be downloaded to aid in the creation of new products or projects for your business? NASA’s software catalog contains more than 800 free software programs. These programs have been tested and verified and cover a wide variety of industrial applications, including data processing and handling, propulsion, electronics, business systems, and more!
When you think of NASA, most people immediately think of the astronauts, rocket launches, exploring the universe, and the pretty cool NASA “meatball” (the logo that you see everywhere). What you don’t always think about is what goes on behind the scenes to get us out of this world.
Technology development and testing is expensive, but there’s no room for shortcuts when safeguarding human life. So NASA has gotten good at developing cost-effective resources that can be used in lots of different ways. That might mean combining off-the-shelf parts with engineering expertise or working with a company to take a proven technology to the next level.
