NASA's Online Tool Eases Licensing Process for New Technologies, Products

NASA's online tool, the QuickLaunch licensing tool, eases the licensing process for those interested in using NASA research to develop new technologies and products. The tool provides access to more than 30 NASA technologies for the purpose of licensing and commercial development. Featuring preapproved terms and conditions, the tool will speed up the approval process.

"NASA develops hundreds of technologies each year in support of its aeronautics and space exploration missions," says NASA's Daniel Lockney. "This new tool ensures that the American taxpayer will receive a second benefit from its investment in NASA through the creation of new products, new markets and new jobs."

The QuickLaunch tool allows users to ask questions of NASA licensing managers, file applications online, and search by NASA center or technology category.
