The Air Force Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are mission-oriented programs that address the needs and requirements of the Air Force through research and development topics that have military and commercial potential. The SBIR program funds research and development through small businesses of 500 or fewer employees. The STTR program funds cooperative R&D projects with small businesses and non-profit U.S. Research institutions, such as universities. The Air Force SBIR and STTR programs provide more than $300 million in funding for research and development activities by small businesses annually.
