This is the second ABTR, presenting joint technology reporting from the three Astrophysics science-theme-focused Program Offices -- Physics of the Cosmos (PhysCOS), Cosmic Origins (COR), and Exoplanet Exploration Program (ExEP).
Technology gaps are what separates the current state of the art (SOTA) from what is needed to enable or enhance future strategic Astrophysics missions, usually driven by science gaps.
This database is updated annually and indexes technology development projects funded by the NASA Astrophysics Division. The portfolio includes information about the Strategic Astrophysics Technology (SAT), Astrophysics Research and Analysis (APRA), and Nancy Grace Roman Technology Fellowship (RTF) projects, along with other competed and direct-funded technology projects.
