Why TechLeap?
To support future missions and reduce risk, NASA seeks to rapidly identify and develop technologies of significant interest through a series of challenges. Participants in these challenges submit an application to develop a specific technology and then compete for awards to build the payloads. As an added incentive, NASA intends to award a suborbital flight test to the Winners of each challenge.
Autonomous Observation Challenge No. 1
Up to $500K to develop innovative observation technologies for small spacecraft that can be tested on suborbital flights.
