  • 15. National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA-Ames Center for Innovation and Technology Enhancement (N-CITE)•  The NASA-Ames Center for Innovation and Technology Enhancement (N-CITE) is proposed to be established as a multidisciplinary, product-oriented technology development and applications accelerator. N-CITE will be coordinated through the ARC Chief Technologists office, with the ARC Associate Director for Technology functioning as the Senior Advisor and Executive Management point of contact.•  To facilitate communication and interaction with collaborators in the NASA Research Park (NRP) and other external partners and associates, N-CITE is intended to be primarily located in building 19 in the NRP, with extensions to the ARC Chief Technologist offices in building 202, and in association with ARC technology organizations located inside the ARC main campus.•  N-CITE is envisioned as NASA Ames technology focal point and liaison with NRP partners and other industry, academic, and government agencies engaged in the development of enabling capabilities and technologies of interest to the Center. N-CITE will actively engage developers on multiple levels to facilitate degrees of communication and interaction as appropriate. Facilitated technology interchanges and invited seminars are mechanisms to be used by N-CITE to gauge the suitability and interest of each party for a particular collaboration or simply to boost the visibility of a certain technology activity.•  Later, more mature exchanges with external entities will take the form of facilitated, multi-sector studies and initiative planning efforts. Effectively, N-CITE will promote visibility of NASA technology interests and goals, and will improve communications between NASA investigators and external developers by virtue of its location in Building 19 as well as the information exchange mechanisms it employs.•  The anticipated results are to show higher rates of collaboration between NASA, the NRP, and other external entities along with increased proposal wins . N-CITE offices will be comprised of 3 staff offices/meeting rooms in Building 19. The offices will be used for visiting technologists, student interns and coops, and the Technology Integration Agent (TIA). The Center Chief Technologist will manage N-CITE activities and staff from Building 202. N-CITE will be located adjacent to ConnectLabs in Building 19. The ARC Chief Technologists office intends to collaborate with ConnectLabs and will plan to engage their capabilities to engage entities in distant locations.
