Welcome to TechPort

Welcome to TechPort - NASA's resource for collecting and sharing information about NASA-funded technology development. This system allows the public to discover the technologies NASA is working on every day to explore space, understand the universe, and improve aeronautics.  NASA is developing technologies in areas such as propulsion, nanotechnology, robotics, and human health. TechPort has helpful information on these technology projects, including descriptions, images, and locations where work is being performed; and it is easy-to-search so users can find technologies related to their specific interest. TechPort also has built-in analysis tools for creating customized reports or exporting project details. Get the most out of TechPort by checking out the tip sheets at the bottom of this homepage.  The tip sheets provide step-by-step instructions on how to use the system to find exactly what you are looking for.
