Summary Report Instructions


SBIR/STTR Summary Reports

General Information - Summary reports and innovation/transition success stories are displayed on the Air Force SBIR/STTR web site to facilitate commercialization opportunities. A summary report is an “updated proposal abstract,” thereby requiring minimal preparation time and effort. By contrast, a transition or innovation success story may be appropriate when a SBIR/STTR technology has: (1) transitioned into an Air Force system or subsystem, or when technology originally developed through an Air Force SBIR/STTR project has transitioned into another Department of Defense agency system or subsystem; or (2) become part of, or was continued by, non-SBIR/STTR-funded (core) research projects, e.g., Phase III funding.  Questions about summary reports or success stories may be referred to the Air Force SBIR/STTR web site Manager (see Contact Us link). 

Summary Report Submission Methodology – Summary reports must be submitted electronically by Small Businesses through the Small Business section of the Air Force SBIR/STTR web site.

Prior-Year Summary Reports – In addition to summary reports for active Phase II contracts, firms may generate prior-year summary reports on eligible SBIR/STTR contracts. This is a voluntary initiative on the part of the firm.

Some Writing “Do’s and Don’ts” – Although there is no “one best way” for drafting summary reports, we want Small Businesses to be aware of some fundamental security and public affairs considerations involved within the clearance process.

Summary Report Template – The summary report template depicts the various data fields needed for preparation of an electronic summary report.
