The Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program (SATOP) is a cooperative program between the states of Florida, New Mexico, New York, and Texas.

SATOP is a FREE service designed to provide technical assistance and speed the transfer of space technology to the private sector. By giving FREE technology assistance to small businesses, SATOP helps them solve their challenges and increase their chances of succeeding.

The goal of SATOP is to help small businesses apply the technical expertise derived from the US space program. Made up of an Alliance of more than 45 space companies, universities, colleges, and NASA centers (Johnson Space Center – Texas, Kennedy Space Center – Florida, and White Sands Test Facility – New Mexico), SATOP finds professionals within theses companies who volunteer their time and expertise in solving the challenges brought forth by the inquiring businesses.

Your business can receive up to 40 hours of FREE technical assistance through SATOP. It is our goal to provide resolutions in less than 90 days. SATOP has helped companies with machine design, process engineering, material selection, and many other technical issues.

Over 3,000 requests have been processed since the program’s inception, and more than 2,500 resolutions have been provided to businesses. Due to the success of this program, the high demand for assistance and a finite level of resources, SATOP has to prioritize the projects it can work on. Visit our Success Story section to learn how SATOP has had a direct impact upon the world of commerce.
