The Hot Operating Temperature Technology (HOTTech) program supports the advanced development of technologies for the robotic exploration of high-temperature environments, such as the Venus surface, Mercury, or the deep atmosphere of Gas Giants. The goal of the program is to develop and mature technologies that will enable, significantly enhance, or reduce technical risk for in situ missions to high-temperature environments (approaching 500 degrees Celsius or higher). It is a priority for NASA to invest in technology developments that
mitigate the risks of mission concepts proposed in response to upcoming Announcements of Opportunity and expand the range of science that might be achieved with future missions. Note that this HOTTech program element is not soliciting hardware for a flight opportunity.
HOTTech is limited to high temperature electrical and electronic systems that could be needed for potentially extended in situ missions to such environments.
