Description of Military Programs at NASA Ames
The Mission of military programs is to facilitate, leverage, connect, and engage synergistic innovative collaborations within and between NASA, DoD, and other entities, locally and across the globe, for mutually beneficial partnerships resulting in tangible high value high impact knowledge, resource, and technology sharing while supporting STEM and diversity.
The Vision of Military Programs is to be a world-class leader in facilitation of science and technology, mutually beneficial collaborations within and across disciplines and departments, providing both quantitative and qualitative positively disruptive value while supporting STEM and diversity.
The day to day work of Military Programs involves a wide range of activities in a wide range of disciplines, from relationship building to technology scouting and sharing to tool creation. Students may work in a core competency area creating solutions for NASA that will later be applied to the Navy, or they may work in offices aimed at knowledge mapping for tool creation that will help bring NASA and Navy technologies together.
