We invite you to join us in Hartford, Connecticut, for the 2018 NASA iTech Cycle III Forum on October 25-26, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Final Agenda

NASA’s unique government initiative, NASA iTech, seeks out cutting-edge technologies with applicability to NASA’s mission. For the 2018 NASA iTech Cycle III, the agency is identifying strategic technological innovations that have the potential to meet demands of life on earth and space exploration.

Through a competitive selection process, NASA has crowdsourced solutions in the areas of Big Data & Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence & Autonomous Robotic Capabilities, Revolutionary Concepts for Communications, Medical Breakthroughs, and X-Factor Innovations. From these submissions, NASA’s Chief Technologists will select the ten finalists with the greatest potential to commercialize their technologies and address solution to problems in space and here on Earth.

At the Forum, finalists will present and workshop their solutions. During the two-day event, you will participate alongside innovators, scientists, investors and industry leaders in a series of impact tables with each of the finalists, and a series of thematic discussions with leading subject matter experts. NASA will recognize the top three innovations, as judged by NASA experts at the close of the Forum.
