Welcome to the Astrophysics PCOS and COR strategic technology development portfolio
This database is updated annually and indexes PCOS- and COR-managed technology development projects. The portfolio includes information mostly about our Strategic Astrophysics Technology (SAT) and direct-funded projects and some other Astrophysics funded projects which the PCOS or COR Program Office manages.

Astrophysics is the science that studies the universe. NASA's Astrophysics Division funds and manages missions and studies that seek to broaden our understanding of our place in the universe. This work addresses three big questions: How does the universe work? How did we get here? Are we alone? These three themes are managed by the Physics of the Cosmos (PCOS) Program, the Cosmic Origins (COR) Program, and the Exoplanet Exploration Program (ExEP), respectively. The breadth and scope of astrophysics can be summed up by simply saying that if it is located outside our Solar System, we are interested in studying it. This portfolio includes projects within the purview of the PCOS and COR programs.
