NASA Ames examine heart, within the center of Silicon Valley, is embarking on a software to increase a technological know-how and know-how park bringing jointly top businesses and universities to capitalize on Ames remarkable project and placement. different projects into account contain the mixing of SBIR delivers with a deliberate on-site incubator, digital collaboration, and probably a brand new public enterprise capital software. The STEP Board was once requested via the NASA Administrator to carry a one-day symposium to check those tasks. This document comprises commissioned examine papers and a precis of the complaints of the symposium geared up in line with the NASA request.

McDonald extended the discussion of NASA’s three primary theme areas, explaining that all the elements of the agency’s new scientific and technological direction have significant leadership and representation at Ames. The origins of this leadership have much to do with Ames’ location in Silicon Valley. The center began early to build up a strong infrastructure and staff in information technology, and is now the lead NASA center for IT. It also became a national leader in advanced computing, and extended its work to artificial intelligence.
23, 1997. 13 Some 70 biotech firms are located within five miles of Kendall Square, a recently renovated site of urban decay. , Universities Are Fueling High-Tech Economic Booms,” The New York Times on the Web, Oct. 8, 1999. 14 Ross C. org). 15 MANY GOALS—DIFFERENT METRICS The success of research parks is difficult to measure. As suggested above, they vary a great deal in terms of objectives, types of facilities, and supporting institutions. Reflecting the many goals and different circumstances, there is a corresponding lack of agreement on metrics.
When Ames was asked by NASA Administrator Goldin to revise its strategic plan, it was logical for Ames to continue its focus on IT. In recent years, the center had begun to build up expertise in life and microgravity sciences, adding significant strength in biology. It is NASA’s lead center for astrobiology. Expertise in the third theme area, nanotechnology, grew out of Ames’ supercomputing mandate. Dr. McDonald expanded on several points made by Dr. Venneri, including the use of nanotechnology to produce very light launch vehicles.
