Did you know?

The DoN leads in SBIR Phase III execution, accounting for 55% of DoD SBIR Phase III Funding between FY14-FY18.

All Navy Phase II Awardees in CA.

Why are Phase IIs important?

The ultimate goal of the SBIR/STTR program is to get the technology developed under it to transition, either into tools or services that benefit the Fleet, or for it to commercialize. After Phase II, if sucessful, a company would ideally secure non-SBIR funding to enhance ongoing projects with expanded research, development, test, or evaluation to accelerate transition and commercialization (known as a Phase III: Transition). Therefore, it is important to get to know sucessful candidates who can share in on their Phase II success, but for such candidates to also continue to look for opportunities to use or revive the efforts already accomplished (e.g. Reachback, Sequential, Second Phase II).

All Navy SBIR Awards from the past 5 years.
