NASA Ames learn heart, within the center of Silicon Valley, is embarking on a software to boost a technology and know-how park bringing jointly top businesses and universities to capitalize on Ames unheard of undertaking and site. different tasks into account comprise the combination of SBIR can provide with a deliberate on-site incubator, digital collaboration, and doubtless a brand new public enterprise capital software. The STEP Board used to be requested via the NASA Administrator to carry a one-day symposium to check those tasks. This record contains commissioned examine papers and a precis of the complaints of the symposium equipped in line with the NASA request.

McDonald offered another example of the potential power of harnessing biological function in the service of technology. If one wants to build a device with a million transistors for use in an extreme environment, such as heavy radiation, one can be certain that some of these transistors will be damaged. They can be protected by shielding, but shielding is heavy. What is needed is a degree of self-healing—a process developed in biological organisms. Autonomy and Intelligent Agents Space systems also need (like organisms) a degree of autonomy.
As both papers affirm, the creation of a successful S&T park requires effective cooperation by many parties. Both the participants in the discussion and the commissioned analysis highlighted that the management challenge for Ames will be to accomplish the multiple objectives of this initiative, in collaboration with the industry and university partners as well as the state and local governments, while keeping in mind the need for clear goals and appropriate metrics to measure progress in this innovative undertaking.
She expressed her excitement about NASA’s interest in developing a research park at Ames Research Center. In her view, it will provide a unique opportunity to develop and harness the talents of NASA, Silicon Valley firms, and the region’s universities in a synergistic partnership that will benefit all parties. The NASA effort complements the University of California’s plan to develop a regional education center in Silicon Valley. The University of California at Santa Cruz, she remarked, is leading the effort to build an education and research center that connects the resources and intellectual capital of the entire University of California with the specific interests and needs of Silicon Valley including NASA’s research agenda at Ames Research Center.
