Together, we can go further.
NASA iTech searches for and identifies advancements in technologies, NOT already funded by NASA, that are solving problems on Earth and have the potential to address existing challenges to enable NASA missions.
Join an elite group of inventors and entrepreneurs who have participated in this program. We're now looking for innovations ranging from AI, VR, robotics, medical breakthroughs, flexible materials, and any technology you feel NASA must know about.
Investors are a key part of the NASA iTech program. From being involved in evaluations and events, to getting some of the best deal-flow you'd ever imagine, if you are an investor we invite you to connect with us to learn how to get involved.
From aerospace to biotech, electronics manufacturers and more, we invite industry leaders to work with us. You will meet the most promising innovators out there. Our industry participants have sourced new partnerships and investments via NASA iTech.
Collaboration is our strength.
NASA leads the way in scientific discovery of Earth, other worlds and the cosmos. Advancing new technologies in aeronautics and space systems, NASA's missions expand the frontiers of human experience and allow American industry to cultivate a growing space marketplace.
Through NASA iTech, we reach beyond traditional partnerships into early, independent innovation. NASA iTech helps us identify the innovations we will need in the future (and the people behind them). We connect innovators with investors who can help propel them forward, and industry leaders who can partner or invest in the technologies.
Meet iTech Alumni
NASA iTech provides a platform for NASA’s Center Chief Technologists to vet the start-up companies’ technologies for their space application, and volunteer investors and external Subject Matter Experts to vet the technologies for their commercial market viability. The 50 finalist companies that have participated in the NASA iTech Forums have been able to raise $368 million dollars in private investment dollars in 24 months. Two examples of companies that are “spinning in” their technology in support of NASA missions are Aequor, Inc., and FGC Plasma Solutions.
Meet our three most recent winners below, and more of our alumni.
Analytical Space, Inc., offers an exciting new data relay network solution to dramatically expand the utilization of Earth observation-technology and provide satellites with more opportunities to downlink data.
One Milo, Inc., offers revolutionary compact devices that enable rapid diagnostic testing — using samples of blood, urine or saliva — and wirelessly sending results to a smartphone application.
