A component or process involving NASA technology was:
(a) used in manufacturing the product.
(b) integral to the product's existence or commercialization.
(c) a design modification of an existing product.
NASA Center laboratory personnel made significant contributions to designers of the product, including the use of NASA facilities for testing purposes.
Successful entrepreneurial endeavors by ex-NASA employees whose technical expertise was developed while employed by NASA.
A product is commercialized as the result of a NASA patent license or waiver, including patents waived to the inventors.
Technology Transfer programs or activities contributed to the product development and commercialization (e.g., Tech Briefs, RTTCs, COSMIC, Applications Projects). Preferably, software examples will involve use of NASA-generated programs, and RTTC examples will permit identification of specific NASA technical information (e.g., reports) or other NASA assistance that was useful to the industrial clients.
A commercial product developed as a result of the NASA SBIR or STTR Program.
