Intro


THE TECH IS OUT THERE.

 

 

 

 

NASA iTech is a unique initiative to find innovative ideas that address critical problems here on Earth that also hold great potential to solve critical technology challenges in future space exploration.

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.

Finalists from across the U.S. have represented 20 of their most promising innovative technologies at the NASA iTech Forum during Cycles 1 and 2.

Cycle 3 is now in progress, with entries being evaluated in challenge focus areas including Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality Advancement, Autonomy, High Performance Computing, Medical Breakthrough and more.

Semifinalists for Cycle 3 will be announced on November 21, 2017.
