Sponsor Profile: Tech Briefs


NASA Tech Briefs is a media co-sponsor for the Space Foundation's April 8 cyberspace conference Cyber 1.3, to be held at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colo.

When the U.S. Congress formed the National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) in 1958, it mandated in the charter that NASA and its contractors must report to industry any new, commercially-significant technologies developed in the course of their R&D, so that engineers, managers and scientists could use this valuable information to improve their competitiveness and productivity. For more than three decades, this has been accomplished primarily through the publication of NASA Tech Briefs.

First issued as single sheet reports in the 1960s and converted to a magazine format in the 1970s, NASA Tech Briefs has been a joint publishing venture of NASA and Tech Briefs Media Group (New York City) since 1985, a pioneering government-private sector partnership that has saved taxpayers millions of dollars in publishing costs while dramatically increasing the magazine's reach to OEM design/development engineers and managers. Today, NASA Tech Briefs' qualified circulation surpasses 190,000.
