The Department of Defense (DOD) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program is a congressionally mandated program coordinated by the Small Business Administration. 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. DOD issues announcement topics supporting the Warfighter in three cycles throughout the year.
Annually, the DoD SBIR budget represents more than $1 billion in research funds. Over half the awards are to firms with fewer than 25 people and a third to firms of fewer than 10. A fifth are minority or women-owned businesses. Historically, a quarter of the companies are first-time winners.
SBIR/STTR goals are designed to:
Stimulate technological innovation in private sector
Use small business to meet federal research and development needs
Encourage participation by socio-economically disadvantaged firms
