  • 26-Apr-2010 01:18 EDT

NASA entered into a nonreimbursable Space Act Agreement with Chrysler Group LLC to coordinate technology development and pursue partnership opportunities in areas such as mobility systems, advanced materials, and wireless technologies. The goal of the agreement is to advance technologies in areas of common technical interest by leveraging each organization's skills and expertise. Some of the areas to be reviewed include materials engineering, robotics, radar, and battery systems. NASA has worked with the Chrysler Group on previous space ventures. In 1961, Chrysler built Redstone rockets for the Mercury Project that put the first American in space. Also, Chrysler built boosters to power the first two Apollo spacecraft, launching Apollo 7 into Earth orbit and Apollo 8 on its way to the moon.
