The NASA Technology Demonstration Mission (TDM) program represents an innovative
approach to rapidly demonstrate and infuse revolutionary technologies into future
missions for the national space community. This presentation provides a real-world
example on restructuring the TDM program, which was the largest budgeted program in
the Office of the Chief Technologist at the time. The result was the first-ever release of
a TDM Broad Area Announcement and seven contract awards focused on emerging
space technologies. This presentation covers how the program was restructured and
includes a discussion of the following: creating guiding principles; developing an
advocacy strategy; selecting and investing in innovative technologies; devising unique
program management and acquisition approaches; and securing partnerships with
NASA Mission Directorates, government agencies, the military, the aerospace industry,
