Scientific and Technical Information (STI) Training and Awareness

Contact: Darline Brown, 358-2039
STI is a critical component in the worldwide activity of scientific and technical aerospace research and development. It is essential to help NASA avoid duplication of research by sharing information and to ensure that the U.S. maintains its preeminence in aerospace-related industries and education. The STI Program collects, processes, archives, and disseminates NASA STI. Training on the STI request process is now available in SATERN (search OTH-004-03) and is highly recommended for those who publish/approve STI. All HQ STI Document Availability Authorization (DAA) requests must be submitted through the Agency's STI electronic DAA (eDAA) system using NASA Form (NF) 1676B. To ensure the STI eDAA is configured with the appropriate information for your Division, contact Darline Brown. For more information on the STI program, visit the HQ STI Web page.
