Dpt. of Defense, Small Business R&D Grant Opportunity
The DoD invests up to $1 BILLION annually in funding and takes 0% equity. This year the DoD is looking to invest in multiple different categories of R&D from the private and public sector.
Mission: The DOD SBIR/STTR Program’s mission is to elicit innovative solutions from the small business community that address defense technology gaps confronting the DOD and to include technologies that will also have high commercialization potential in the private sector.
Phase I $150,000
Phase II $1,000,000
Announcement Open: Tuesday, January 8, 2019
Announcement Closes: Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 8:00 PM ET.
HOW IT WORKS:
The SBIR/STTR program is structured in three phases:
Phase I: Project Feasibility Determines the scientific, technical, and commercial merit of the ideas submitted.
Phase II: Technology Development Major research and development is funded to develop projects into technology to support the Warfighter.
Phase III: Commercialization Small businesses are expected to obtain non-SBIR government or private funding to transition Phase II technologies into a product or service for the government and commercial marketplace.
Phase I and II proposals are evaluated on three criteria:
The technical and scientific merit of the proposed approach
Key personnel qualifications in the area of research
The potential for transition into a commercial product or service
