NASA Form 1679 (NF1679) - Disclosure of Invention and New Technology (Including Software): (Use when a new technology/invention is developed). You may either log in above and fill out the electronic version of the NF1679 or download the PDF or Word version to be sent via email to your NASA center.

What qualifies as new technologies and innovations is very broad.They include any invention, discovery, improvement, or innovation that was either conceived or first actually reduced to practice in the performance of NASA work. This includes any new and useful processes, machines, manufacture, or composition of matter; or any new and useful improvement in existing processes, machines, manufacture, or compositions of matter. Also included are new computer programs, and improvements to, or new applications of, existing computer programs, whether or not copyrightable. A representative list of new technologies and innovations includes, but is not limited to: new or improved techniques, products, devices, materials, methods, processes, chemical compositions, systems, machines apparatuses, articles, fixtures, tools, or software.

Interim New Technology Summary Report (NTSR): a listing (every 12 months from the start of the Contract) of all new technologies (inventions and/or innovations) developed during the reporting period, or certification that there were none.

Final New Technology Summary Report (NTSR): a listing (prior to the Contract closeout) of all new technologies (inventions and/or innovations) developed during performance of the Contract, or certification that there were none.

NASA prefers that contractors/grantees/recipients use the NASA NTSR form, by way of the New Technology Reporting System when submitting an NTSR.
