NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Spinoffs Feature NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Stennis Developed Technologies – NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration


As NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration innovates for the benefit of all, what the agency develops for exploration has the potential to evolve into other technologies with broader use here on Earth. Many of those examples are highlighted in NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s annual Spinoff book including dozens of NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration-enabled medical innovations, as well other advancements in 3D printing, robots, and brake designs.

This year’s publication also features a section highlighting technologies developed at agency centers such as NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, that are available for use by various industries.

NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s 2024 Spinoff highlights more than 40 medical and other commercialized technologies using the agency’s research and development expertise.

“As we continue to push new frontiers and do the unimaginable, NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s scientists and engineers are constantly innovating and advancing technologies,” said NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Administrator Bill Nelson. “A critical part of our mission is to quickly get those advances into the hands of companies and entrepreneurs who can use them to grow their businesses, open new markets, boost the economy, and raise the quality of life for everyone.”

One of the featured medical innovations is the first wireless arthroscope – a small tube carrying a camera inserted into the body during surgery – to receive clearance from the United States. Food and Drug Administration, which benefited from NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s experience with spacesuits and satellite batteries. Commercialized technologies for diagnosing illnesses like the coronavirus, hepatitis, and cancer have also stemmed from NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s space exploration and science endeavors. Even certain types of toothpaste originated from the agency’s efforts to grow crystals for electronics.

The book also features several technologies NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has identified as promising future spinoffs and information on how to license agency tech. Since the 1970s, thousands of NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration technologies have found their way into several scientific and technical disciplines, impacting nearly every American industry.

Additional 2024 Spinoff highlights include developments under NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Artemis campaign, like a small, rugged video camera used to improve aircraft safety and a new method for detecting defects or damage in composite materials. Meanwhile, another spinoff story details the latest benefits of fuel cell technology created more than 50 years ago for Apollo, which is now poised to support terrestrial power grids based on renewable energy.

The book also features other notable spinoffs like:

NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Stennis items included in the new publication are:

  • Remote Sensing Toolkit. The NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Spinoff 2024 publication describes the remote sensing toolkit as an online portal that offers easy access to NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Earth-observation data. NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Technology Transfer program at NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Stennis developed the online resource to promote wider use of the agency’s freely available remote sensing data and software to work with it. It helps users find, analyze, and use the most relevant data for projects such as precision agriculture and crop forecasting, conservation and resource management, and natural disaster planning and response. The free and easy-to-use toolkit includes data from more than 20 satellites and missions.
  • Cryogenic Butterfly Cam Valve. According to the NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Spinoff 2024 book, the unique butterfly valve designed at NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Stennis provides “no-leak” performance in a broad range of temperatures. The NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Stennis valve addresses a key disadvantage of current butterfly valves, which require the butterfly disc to establish a tight seal at exactly 90 degrees. Providing additional torque to the valve may cause the disc to rotate beyond 90 degrees, allowing fluid flow. Current butterfly valves also usually fail leakage tests when used with liquid nitrogen, a key cryogenic in propulsion testing. The simple NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Stennis design remedies these issues by allowing rotation of the valve shaft, enabling the disc to slide until it seals tightly despite temperature changes. The NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Stennis valve can be used in various aerospace, natural gas, and cryogenic plant systems.

“As NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s longest continuously running program, we continue to increase the number of technologies we license year-over-year while streamlining the development path from the government to the commercial sector,” said Daniel Lockney, Technology Transfer program executive at NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Headquarters in Washington. “These commercialization success stories continually prove the benefits of transitioning agency technologies into private hands, where the real impacts are made.”

Spinoffs are part of NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Space Technology Mission Directorate and its Technology Transfer program. Tech Transfer is charged with finding broad, innovative applications for NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration-developed technology through partnerships and licensing agreements, ensuring agency investments benefit the nation and the world.
