WASHINGTON (BNS): NASA and Chrysler Group LLC have signed a non-reimbursable Space Act Agreement, to work on technology development and pursue partnership opportunities in areas such as mobility systems, advanced materials and wireless technologies.

The collaboration seeks to use technologies originally developed for human spaceflight to enhance future vehicles and adapt advanced automotive technology for use in space.

"The investment in NASA technologies has led to hundreds of applications here on Earth for several decades now, and this collaboration with Chrysler promises to continue that tradition," Mike Coats, director of NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston said in a NASA news release.

Chrysler group has worked with NASA on many 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, it said.
