NASGRO Availability & Licensing Philosophy
NASGRO® is made available to the general public by Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) with the goal of transferring NASA-developed technology to industry. NASGRO® is developed and are distributed under the terms of a Space Act Agreement (a joint development agreement) between NASA Johnson Space Center and Southwest Research Institute, with additional support from the European Space Agency, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the NASGRO Industrial Consortium.
The standard cost of a perpetual, single-seat license (one user) for NASGRO® is $4,000 (USD) for customers in the United States and many overseas countries. However, special pricing arrangements may apply for non-US customers depending on country, in particular, mainland China (PRC) and India. Please contact SwRI for a specific quote.
Technical support is available at no cost for a period of one (1) year from the date on the signed license agreement and includes bug fixes for the licensed version of NASGRO. New versions of NASGRO will require purchasing a new license for that version, and a "current customer" discount is available.
