NASA Challenge

NASA's Technology Transfer Program is focused on ensuring “NASA’s innovations developed for exploration and discovery are broadly available to the public, thereby maximizing their benefit to the nation. Whether you're looking to start a new company, enhance an existing product, or create a new product line, you can gain a competitive edge in the marketplace by putting NASA technology to work for you”.

And this is certainly true…so much so that the Sprowtt team selected the NASA patent portfolio as the federal government portfolio focus area for our first CETTC. The Tech Transfer Gateway will be configured to allow competitors to quickly search NASA’s extensive patent portfolio with a whopping 1200 high-tech patented inventions. Our search tool will organize the large number of patented government inventions into categories and make them searchable so that you can easily identify technologies suited to your team’s interests and background. The Gateway will also highlight the most recent and emerging technologies patented by NASA with strong commercial potential; all so you can launch your business into the Sprowtt Challenge!

While NASA drives to return to the Moon by 2024, Sprowtt will drive NASA patented technologies into the marketplace…
