NASA Puts Its Software Online & Makes It Free to Download

A quick heads up: NASA has just announced that it has released its “2017–2018 soft­ware cat­a­log, which offers an exten­sive port­fo­lio of soft­ware prod­ucts for a wide vari­ety of tech­ni­cal appli­ca­tions, all free of charge to the pub­lic, with­out any roy­al­ty or copy­right fees.”

More than 30% of NASA inno­va­tions are soft­ware-based, and by mak­ing its soft­ware avail­able to the pub­lic, it helps give a boost to entre­pre­neurs, small busi­ness­es, cor­po­ra­tions and aca­d­e­mics. Ah, the ben­e­fits of Tech­nol­o­gy Trans­fer.

Avail­able in both hard copy and online, the soft­ware archive is divid­ed into numer­ous cat­e­gories, includ­ing Busi­ness Sys­tems and Project Man­age­ment, Vehi­cle Man­age­ment, Data Servers and Process Han­dling, Data and Image Pro­cess­ingDesign and Inte­gra­tion Tools, and more. See all avail­able soft­ware here.
