Welcome to open.NASA.gov!
We have a new Open Innovation team to continue NASA’s efforts to meet the White House mandate to set our data free – in a format that is useful for you. In doing so, we hope to spark your creative juices and equip you with tools to innovate your world – whether local, global, or interstellar – leveraging our digital assets. We may not be able to offer you the ride-of-your-life on a spaceship (at least for now), but we can certainly work together to solve looming challenges here on Earth – using NASA data, tools, and resources.
About the Open Innovation team
We are part of NASA’s Office of the Chief Information Officer, nestled in the Innovation and Digital Services Division under the leadership of the Chief Technology Officer for IT, Deborah Diaz.
The Technology and Innovation Division is committed to empowering NASA’s scientists and engineers with the most innovative information technology in the world. This division engages the brightest minds across the Agency to guide NASA’s IT strategy and investment decisions, and to identify emerging IT technologies that can best support NASA’s technology needs in a rapidly changing world. The Division serves as the advanced planning function of the Office of the CIO and tackles policy and organization issues like technology infusion, procurement, and future IT workforce development. The work is organized in four focus areas: 1) Innovation and Digital Services, 2) Data Management and Services, 3) Enterprise Architecture, and 4) Emerging Technology. The Open Innovation team manages the Innovation and Digital Services requirements.
We have a number of projects in the hopper, and they all revolve around you – to give you open access to our considerable data assets. Here are two we’re especially proud of:
open.NASA.gov exists to share our efforts in promoting Transparency, Collaboration and Participation.
