Mission Summary (Firm Profile) Submissions
Firms that have Air Force SBIR/STTR awards are encouraged to provide their firm profiles. The firm profile (mission summary and logo) will appear with the firm's name in the Air Force SBIR/STTR web site and may also be displayed on the Small Business Search. Small Business with R&D capabilities and wishing to be part of the Air Force Small Business Search, may provide their firm profile even though they do not have any Air Force SBIR/STTR awards.
A mission summary consists of a 2-3 sentence synopsis about your firm's mission and core competencies. To submit your firm's mission summary and company logo, follow the below steps:
- Registration. Any firm wishing to provide its firm profile within the Air Force Small Business user login area should first be registered on the Department of Defense SBIR/STTR submission web site.
- Small Business User Login. Select the Small Business user category link on the far left hand side of the Air Force SBIR/STTR web site home page and log into the Small Business user area.
- Firm Profile. Click on "Firm Profile" from the links provided in the Small Business user login area. To add your mission summary and/or logo, click the “Edit” link. Then, type your mission summary in the text box provided. The text narrative is limited to 650 characters/spaces (or approximately 100 words). To attach your company logo, use the browse attachment feature to locate the jpg, gif, or tif file on your computer to upload. [Note: For best results, please use one of the following file formats when uploading a logo: (1) GIF (without transparency) or (2) JPEG (only RGB color mode). Users may upload other image formats (like PNG or BMP or TIF), but results are not guaranteed. Logos embedded in MS Word or PowerPoint documents will not display properly.]
- Save Entry. Prior to saving your entry, make sure that you have checked the “I grant permission …” option box if you want your mission summary and logo to appear in the Small Business Search. Then, click the “Save” link and your mission summary and logo will be displayed. Your mission summary and logo (if provided) are now available in the Small Business Search section of the Air Force SBIR/STTR web site.
You can update/edit your firm profile at any time by following the above steps.
