NASA has announced that it is making available to the public, at no cost, more than 1,000 codes with its release of a new online software catalog. Organized into fifteen broad categories, the new catalog offers a wide variety of applications for use by industry, academia, other government agencies, and the general public.
The technologies featured in the software catalog cover project management systems, design tools, data handling, and image processing, as well as solutions for life support functions, aeronautics, structural analysis, and robotic and autonomous systems. The codes represent NASA’s best solutions to a wide array of complex mission requirements.
NASA’s Technology Transfer Program, managed by the Office of the Chief Technologist at NASA Headquarters in Washington, ensures technologies developed for exploration and discovery missions are broadly available to the public.
