The National Technology Transfer Center has worked with NASA since 1989, augmenting NASA's internal capabilities for intellectual-property portfolio management and technology partnership development under the agency's changing circumstances.

NASA technology transfer is the bridge between now and the future. Smoke detectors, computerized tomography (CT) scanners, global positioning systems (GPS), and cordless drills are just a few common technologies that originated through NASA technology transfer. We play a crucial part in connecting NASA with companies to progress the commercialization of federally funded technologies.

Small businesses are partnering with NASA to link technology and product. The National Technology Transfer Center's Small Business Innovative Partnerships (SBIP) Program enables small companies to develop research into technologies that fit the needs of NASA's mission initiatives and contribute to American quality of life through commercialization.
