Ideas submitted to this NASA iTech Cycle relate to four main technology areas, including energy storage density, power-efficient technologies, medical breakthroughs, as well as radiation protection, mitigation and hardware. A fifth area, referred to as X-factor innovations, includes technologies that might not fit under the other topics but could significantly impact space exploration.

Nanobionic USA, from New York, offers a fabric that is designed to temporarily improve endurance, muscle strength and reduce fatigue. Activated by the wearer’s body heat, Nanobionic, an FDA determined general wellness product, recycles and enhances the body’s energy. When Nanobionic technology comes in close contact with the human body, it is said to stimulate local blood flow, enhance faster recovery, increase general wellness of being and promote restful sleep.

“We are extremely happy that NASA has chosen Nanobionic Technology to be amongst innovations that could significantly impact space exploration,” commented Ermis Psipsikas, co-founder and Chief Brand Officer, Nanobionic USA.

NASA iTech searches for and identifies advancements in technologies, not already funded by NASA, that are solving problems on Earth and have the potential to address existing challenges to enable NASA missions.

Three winning teams will be selected and recognised during a non-monetary awards ceremony at the culmination of the forum. They will receive continued mentorship to help further develop the technologies for the commercial market.
