To enhance the RTTC's knowledge of industries and how their technology needs map to the various NASA Centers and Enteprises, the RTTC network plans to do focused research projects on major technology or industory sectors. The reports will identify technology needs and NASA resources to meet those needs.

Each RTTC will perform the research on two to three industry or technology sectors and these studies will be shared across the RTTC network. This will leverage the RTTC effort on a nationwide basis and enhance each RTTC's knowledge of more than a dozen clusters. The following chart shows the lead and supporting RTTCs for the planned cluster analysis.

The cluster reports will list technology needs of the cluster, NASA technology matches from all Centers, and NASA facilities and expertise matches from all Centers. Leveraging the work of all RTTCs will speed the identification of technology transfer opportunities for US industry.
