NTRS
The NASA Scientific and Technical Information (STI) Program's mission is to collect, archive, and disseminate NASA aerospace information, and locate domestic and international STI pertinent to NASA's missions and Strategic Enterprises.Examples of NASA's STI include research reports, journal articles, conference and meeting papers, technical videos, mission-related operational documents, and preliminary data. NASA's technical information is available via the NASA Technical Report Server (NTRS) to provide students, educators, and the public access to NASA's technical literature. NASA citations and full-text documents found on NTRS are unli mited, unclassified, and publicly available.NTRS also collects scientific and technical information from sites external to NASA to broaden the scope of information available to users. NTRS's Simple Search searches for NASA information only and its Advanced Search can search for NASA and non-NASA information.Most of the NASA information does not have full-text document images and documents can be ordered by contacting the NASA Center for AeroSpace Information.
