If you know of a JPL developed technology that you are interested in licensing, or have general inquiries about our commercialization program, please contact Indrani Graczyk at

Below are some featured technologies currently available for licensing. Many JPL technologies can also be found on the NASA Tech Briefs Website.


GPS Software

GIPSY-OASIS, or GIPSY, is the GNSS-Inferred Positioning System and Orbit Analysis Simulation Software package. It is widely used for accurate GPS positioning and geophysical research.

delta-doped CCD

Delta Doped, Back Illuminated Imagers

Delta-doped charge-coupled devices were invented at JPL’s Microdevices Laboratory in 1992 to solve a key problem with scientific imaging detectors that were being developed for the Hubble Space Telescope. These detectors are now finding applications in a variety of earth-based imaging and manufacturing applications.

methanol fuel cell

Methanol Fuel Cell Technology

This novel fuel cell technology uses liquid methanol as a fuel to produce electrical energy, and does not require any fuel processing. Direct Methanol Fuel Cells offer several advantages over other current fuel cell systems, especially with regard to simplicity of design and higher energy density.
