Blacksburg Among Top Areas For Scientific Research, NASA Awards

Posted:

Blacksburg, VA - The NASA SBIR and STTR programs fund the research, development, and demonstration of innovative technologies that fulfill NASA needs.

In a state list of proposals selected for NASA contracts, Virginia won five percent of the national awards from NASA and more than half of the awards to Virginia were to the New River Valley.

Dr. David Gray of Prime Photonics in Blacksburg said, "Virginia Tech is a major draw for research here...small business spin off from Tech and there is a network of ideas and researchers. There is a culture in town that enables researchers, and provides a great place for families to thrive as well."
