This publication is intended to heighten public awareness of the technology available for use and its potential for economic and social benefit to the United States. Section 1 outlines NASA's mainline programs including space operations, aviation technology, space probing, and commerical use of space. Section 2 contains a representative selection of spinoff products and processes and describes the NASA technology from which these transfers were derived. Section 3 details the mechanisms NASA employs to foster technology utilization and stimulate interest among prospective users of the technology. It also contains a brief resume of NASA's efforts in related fields. An appendix to Section 3 lists contact sources for further information about the technology utilization and space commercialization programs. (YP)
