“NASA has some of the best minds in the world who have developed all types of innovations; not only those related to the exploration of space. Cooper is pleased to have been selected to tap into the brainpower, research capabilities and resources of NASA as we continue to improve our operations and products,” said Chuck Yurkovich, Cooper’s vice president of Global Research and Development.

Companies applied for the opportunity to receive up eight hours of no-cost consultation from NASA experts to bring new insights into technical challenges and opportunities. Cooper applied to meet with NASA and will receive assistance with two projects – one on RFID technology and the other on a coating for tire molds – the tiremaker said.

Some of the tiremaker’s technology team got to meet with NASA scientists and engineers at the University of Toledo, with a second team traveling to the NASA Glenn Research Center for a similar consultation in the future.

Cooper is one of 16 companies receiving consultation via the NASA Roadshow, a program in its second year.
