JPL is committed to working with industry to transfer technologies and develop commercial products and services, which employ NASA developed technologies, but address Non-NASA needs.
JPL developed technologies often have applications outside of NASA. Commercial ventures have licensed many patents and software programs developed here and incorporated them into successful products and services. Among these are:
Between 2005 and 2010, JPL innovators have reported over 2000 new technologies. During the same period, 208 patents were granted and 1,972 licenses were established to transfer technology to various US Government, non-profit, and commercial entities.
