THE TECH IS OUT THERE.

 

 

 

 

NASA iTech is an unique initiative to find innovative ideas with the most potential impact on future space exploration and support development of the most promising solutions.

Those ideas may come from small or large businesses, academia, other government organizations – or others who may not have previously had a forum to present their solutions to NASA leadership or their industry partners.

The top 10 NASA iTech Cycle 2 finalists from across the U.S. presented their innovative technologies at the NASA iTech Forum on July 12 and 13, 2017. These finalists represent the most promising solutions submitted for the Cycle 2 challenge to address one of the focus areas listed below.


Congratulations to the NASA iTech Cycle 2 Top three winners!

  • Context Medical, Santa Clara, CA

  • Children’s National Health System - Omniboros Team, Washington, DC

  • University of Houston, Houston, TX
