Description

Oceaneering Space Systems (0SS) was established in 1988 to take advantage of technology developed in the commercial world and apply it to govenment sponsored space programs and to take technology developed by government funds and apply it towards new product ventures in the commercial world. Several NASA and Department of Energy (DOE) programs have developed technology that qualify for commercializing initiatives. Three technologies have been selected for discussion, and each has contributed its own history of lessons learned on the “road to commercialization. ” The NASA space station program has developed advanced refrigeration technology. The NASA underwater training and DOE environmental clean-up programs have developed life support technology. The NASA shuttle and space station programs have developed extravehicular activity (EVA) tools technology.
