Technological Innovation from Space

NASA Logo The NASA Technology Plan has been developed by NASA to describe the NASA technology program. The goal is to broaden the understanding of NASA technology programs and to encourage greater participation from outside the Agency.

By relating technology goals to anticipated mission needs, NASA hopes to stimulate additional innovative approaches to technology challenges and promote more cooperative programs with partners outside NASA who share common goals.
