Pagination or Media Count:
The Army, Navy, Air Force, and Ballistic Missile Defense Organization BMDO, hereafter referred to as DoD Components, invite small business firms and research institutions to jointly submit proposals under this solicitation for the Small Business Technology Transfer STTR program. The STTR Program is a pilot program under which awards are made to small business concerns for cooperative research and development, conducted jointly by a small business and a research institution, through a uniform process having three phases. STTR, although modeled substantially on the Small Business Innovation Research SBIR Program, is a separate program and is separately financed. Subject to availability of funds, DoD Components will support high quality cooperative research and development proposals of innovative concepts to solve the listed defense-related scientific or engineering problems, especially those concepts that also have high potential for commercialization in the private sector. The STTR Program is designed to provide a strong incentive for small companies and researchers at research institutions, i.e., non-profit research institutions, contractor- operated federally funded research and development centers FFRDCs, and universities, to work together as a team to move ideas from the research institution to the marketplace, to foster high-tech economic development, and to address the technological needs of our armed forces.
