The time to submit your proposal is now!
The 21.2/B SBIR/STTR topics are open
You are able to submit proposals starting May 19th, and ending June 17th at 12pm EST.
You may still ask questions during the Open period, but instead of asking them directly to the topic authors, you must ask them publicly through the SITIS website. You’ll find your answers in the Q&A icon directly under the topic.
Visit the Defense SBIR/STTR Innovation Portal, DSIP, to view topics and ask questions.
Pro tip: Don’t wait until the last day to submit your proposals, as the website is heavily trafficked and you can run into technical issues.
