In 2010-2011, Dr. Braun served as the first NASA Chief Technologist in more than a decade. In this capacity, he:

  • Served as the senior Agency executive for technology and innovation policy and programs,
  • Created and led the initial implementation of a spectrum of broadly applicable technology programs designed to build the capabilities required for our nation’s future space missions,
  • Created, staffed and managed the NASA Office of the Chief Technologist,
  • Successfully advocated for an increased NASA technology budget in a time in which the fiscal environment required the Agency’s top-line budget to decrease, and
  • Worked to improve NASA’s organizational culture towards one that values technology development and high-risk, high-reward research.
