The Department of Defense Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are coordinated by the Small Business Administration (SBA). The goal of the programs is to provide funding, typically in the form of contracts, to companies with promising and innovative ideas to engage with federal research and development agencies. Program officers can reach out to the SBIR/STTR office to discuss upcoming requirements. Three times a year, the DoN SBIR/STTR community releases topics, known as broad agency announcements, for small businesses to submit proposals. The first fiscal year release for 2018 will occur on Nov. 29, 2017. For more information, visit the DoN SBIR/STTR website.
