NASA Releases 2018 Publication on Space Technology Commercial Applications

NASA has released the 2018 edition of an annual publication that features 49 everyday-life technology applications with involvement from the space agency’s research and development contributions.

The Spinoff publication for this year includes articles on ultra-sensitive radar technology used for disaster relief; plant preservation techniques in space; and high-speed stereo photogrammetry technology for space shuttles being used for commercial product designs, NASA said Wednesday.

Other articles cover everyday-life applications of artificial intelligence, unmanned technologies, high-speed jet propulsion and design software.

Spinoff 2018 also contains a section featuring under-development NASA technologies expected to be used for commercial applications in the near future.

The publication was made under NASA’s Technology Transfer Program that seeks to expand the number of applications possible with the agency’s space technologies.
