NASA offers its software catalog with more than 800 programs for free to the public


NASA has announced that its computer innovations are now available to the public for free download. The software catalog contains over 800 programs that were originally developed to help explore space. The US space agency believes that by making this software widely accessible, real-world problems can be solved. These software are based on aeronautics, autonomous systems, data and image processing, system testing, etc. The initiative is part of the technology transfer program managed by the Space Technology Missions Directorate.

Over the past few years, NASA has developed a wide variety of programmers to help explore space and make new discoveries. Now, he believes these programs can be used here on Earth to help solve real-world problems like global warming. There are over 800 programs that NASA offers free to the public through its technology transfer program. This software includes tools for calculating the size and power requirements of a solar power system, code for analyzing solar airplane concepts, software for computational fluid dynamics, among others.

“The good news is that this technology is available to the public free of charge. Software suitable for satellites, astronauts, engineers and scientists, as applied and tailored to industries and businesses, is a testament to the tremendous value that NASA brings to the United States – and the world, ”said NASA administrator Bill Nelson.

As of today, the software repository has 832 programs and more will be added to the list. They can be downloaded by anyone. The website offers a filter to sort the software and choose the most relevant. Genres include aeronautics, autonomous systems, business systems and project management, crew and life support, data and image processing, data processing and manipulation, tools for design and integration, environmental sciences, among others.

This NASA initiative is managed by the Space Technology Mission Directorate which ensures that technologies developed by and for NASA are widely available to the public. The space agency is also hosting a webinar on July 13 to let the public know how to download the programs and allow them to ask questions about the NASA software.
