NASA Releases Free Software By Hundreds

The NASA Software Catalog offers an extensive portfolio of software products for a wide variety of technical applications, organized into fifteen areas of science.  The software is free, because NASA wants people to innovate.

The NASA software listed in the catalog is available for use at no charge. Certain codes have been licensed by NASA for commercial purposes and are only available to other agencies or companies with a government contract. If a software product is available for commercial purposes, a statement indicating that the code “is available for licensing” will be included in the software description.

Your request will automatically be routed to the appropriate Center Software Release Authority (SRA) for processing. Many NASA Open Source software codes and mobile apps provide a URL link so that the requester can download the software directly. Therefore, it is not necessary to use the Request Software button for these codes.  NASA Software
