Technology Gaps

Technology Gap Priorities

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.

Tech Database

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.

About the PhysCOS and COR Program Offices


The Physics of the Cosmos (PhysCOS) and Cosmic Origins (COR) Program Offices were set up by NASA HQ Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Astrophysics Division (APD) to support aspects of these focused astrophysics science themes.
