NASGRO® Licensing

NASGRO is licensed and distributed by SwRI under the terms of a Space Act Agreement between SwRI and NASA.

Commercial Licenses

Commercial single-seat and site licenses are available. The standard cost of a perpetual, single-seat license (one user) is $4,400 (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]. Site licenses allow an unlimited number of users at a single geographic site. Please contact Joe Cardinal (+1 210 522 3323) at SwRI for a specific quote.

Technical support is provided 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.

SwRI has distributed more than 1000 single-seat commercial licenses and 61 site licenses to users in many different industries in more than 30 countries since 2002.
