NASA has developed over a thousand patented space technologies that also have many uses right here on Earth. Uses in robotics, environmental remediation, corrosion control, biotech, software, and many, many more.
NASA has 1000+ patented technologies and software packages with potential commercial applications. These are available for transfer to the US public. See our NASA T2 Portal (https://technology.nasa.gov/). Tech development status varies from lab prototype to slightly beyond. TRL averages about 4.
Industrial Robotic Workforce
Colonies of small modular machine learning robots for applications in mining, manufacturing, construction and infrastructure repair. Our robotic machines are truly universal - deployable on both Earth and in space. On Earth, our technology can enable self-repairing cities where small semi-autonomous robots can inspect and repair municipal infrastructure.
OptiPulse Light Grid
The Light Grid is an innovation in the design of semiconductor laser arrays that enables 10 gigabit speed free space optical communications. The Light Grid is significantly more affordable and easier to install than fiber, and is multiple times faster than other wireless broadband technologies.
Smart Bus Stops
Smart Bus Stops provide accurate bus arrival/departure times and passenger wait times at bus stops. This increases fleet visibility, accountability and efficiency optimization opportunities with a result of improving bus reliability, rider satisfaction, access to opportunity and safety - while potentially reducing rider wait times and greenhouse gas emissions.
