What's trending now
- STTR 14.A solicitation - The DoD STTR 14.A solicitation is now in open. The DoD is now accepting proposals via the DoD website. For reasons of competitive fairness, direct communication between proposers and topic authors will no longer be permitted. However, proposers may still submit questions about topics through the SBIR/STTR Interactive Topic Information System (SITIS). All questions and answers are posted electronically for general viewing until the solicitation closes on April 9. Proposers should monitor SITIS during the solicitation period for significant information relevant to their topic(s) of interest.
- The Advanced Technology Search tool has been updated with the Air Force 14.1 solicitation topics. The tool provides a tremendous range of capabilities for all of our users, from Technical Points of Contact (TPOCs) and Transition Agents to the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) veteran or firms planning their first proposal. The search engine uses a taxonomy structured around key Air Force technology areas and allows users to quickly identify topics based upon potential technology applications. The tool is accessed by selecting the "Advanced Technology Search" link under any of the user areas (e.g., "Government"). All Air Force topics since the 2005 solicitation are searchable. A help guide is also available on the Advanced Technology Search page to assist the first-time user.
- Attention TPOCs, SBIR Program Managers and SBIR/STTR firms: The Air Force SBIR/STTR program office is looking for transition success stories as well as innovative technologies with great potential for future transition or commercialization success. For more information on submitting a success-story candidate, send us an e-mail or find a Transition Agent on our Points of Contact page. Be sure to read about recent achievements in our SBIR Advantage newsletter or other success stories in our Publications library.
