Hundreds of applications here on Earth?

Chrysler Group LLC and NASA today announced a three-year alliance to share information related to advanced technologies. The alliance allows Chrysler Group and NASA to tap into existing and emerging space exploration and automotive technologies.

The shared knowledge will be used in their respective activities.

Several advanced technology topics are being investigated for potential synergies including: materials engineering, robotics, radar, battery systems and other energy storage mediums.

“The investment in NASA technologies has led to hundreds of applications here on Earth for several decades now, and this collaboration with Chrysler promises to continue that tradition,” said Mike Coats, director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.
