The software list comes both in hard copy and offline format.
Steve Jurczyk, an associate administrator for NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) in Washington, informed that the software catalog is their way of supporting the innovation economy by granting access to tools to the entrepreneurs, small businesses, academia, and industry.”which is used by today’s top aerospace professionals.
Dan Lockney, NASA’s Technology Transfer program executive, claimed that Softwares had played a significant role in NASA’s mission successes and scientific discoveries “Software has been a critical component of each of NASA’s mission successes and scientific discoveries. In fact, more than 30 percent of all reported NASA innovations are software.”
Here is some popular software that has been open sourced by NASA recently:
