During each NASA iTech cycle, our team will be visiting various cities throughout the U.S. hosting Ignite the Night events to identify technologies that are addressing challenges on Earth and have the potential to also be a solution for NASA.We are searching for non-government funded technologies that are addressing the following focus areas: Power Generation/Energy; Integrated Photonics; Advanced Engineered Materials; Miniaturized Systems; and X-Factor innovations. From applications received, 10 presenters will be selected and given the opportunity to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges that include NASA’s Center Chief Technologists, local subject matter experts, investors and local leaders. One WINNER will be selected earning a position as one of the 25 Semifinalists for the 2020 Cycle II competition and increasing their chance to qualify as a Top 10 Finalist for the NASA iTech Forum* in Tinton Falls, New Jersey on August 19-20.
