Disruptive Technologies

Technologies that result in system-level changes in future space system design and implementation.

Advanced Manufacturing, Design, & Materials

Advanced manufacturing, design, and materials use new methodologies to design, analyze, and fabricate individual parts to entire systems.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) enable tasks that otherwise require human intelligence and human intervention.

Autonomous Systems

Autonomous systems enable spacecraft to make decisions and take actions without human intervention.

Data science

Data science enables the generation, fusion, and analysis of big data sets.

Distributed Systems

A distributed system is a connected and coordinated group of assets, including satellites, telescopes, antennas, and vehicles.

Miniature Systems

Miniaturized systems are fully integrated space systems with reduced weight, size, volume, and power consumption.
