A new NASA software catalog with thousands of codes is ready; anyone can download the software for free. NASA released its 2017-2018 software to the public. It offers software products for a wide variety of technical applications.
You can get the software code used on Shuttle Missions, Orion, and Curiosity.
The first edition of its software catalog was published in April 2014. Since then, NASA has shared thousands of its software programs with industry, students, individuals and other government agencies.
Stephen Jurczyk, Associate Administrator for NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) in Washington said, “The software catalog is our way of supporting the innovation economy by granting access to tools used by today’s top aerospace professionals to entrepreneurs, small businesses, academia and industry.”
NASA software is available in both hard copy and online, and you can browse the categories of NASA software such as, data processing/storage, operations, business systems, propulsion, aeronautics, Vehicle Management, Environmental Science, etc.
LEWICE program is included in the new NASA software catalog, which was developed to help study the effects of ice on an aircraft in flight. Many software packages are being presented for release and the each catalog entry is described with a plain language of what it does.

Daniel Lockney, NASA’s Technology Transfer program executive, said, “Software has been a critical component of each of NASA’s mission successes and scientific discoveries. In fact, more than 30 per cent of all reported NASA innovations are software.”
“We’re pleased to transfer these tools to other sectors and excited at the prospect of seeing them implemented in new and creative ways,” Lockney said.
