  2. SBIR/STTR Program Mission/Objectives • MISSION: Supporting scientific excellence and technological innovation through the investment of federal funds in critical American priorities to build a strong national economy…onesmallbusinessatatime. • OBJECTIVE: • Stimulate technological innovation in DoD’s Critical Technology Areas; • Strengthen role of small business in meeting DoD R&D needs; • Encourage participation by minorities, disadvantaged persons and women in technological innovation • Increase private-sector commercialization innovations derived from federal R&D.

  3. SBIR/STTR Eligibility Checkpoints • SBIR Program • Organized for-profit US business • 500 employees or fewer, including affiliates • PI’s primary employment at the time of award and throughout project duration • STTR Program • Applicant is Small Business Concern • Collaborative R&D effort between SBC and US research institution • - College or University; other non-profit research organization; Federal R&D center

  4. Agency SBIR Differences • Number and Timing of Solicitations • R&D Topic Areas -- (Broad vs. Focused) • Dollar Amount of Award (Phase I and II) • Proposal Preparation Instructions • Proposal Review Process • Type of Award (Contract or Grant) • Contract – Highly focused topics; Driven by requirements • Grant – Less-specified topics; More Flexibility When in doubt, go to the agency website and thoroughly review the solicitation.

  5. Important Facts to Remember • Eligibility is determined at time of award • The PI is notrequired to have a Ph.D. or M.D. • The PI isrequired to have expertise to oversee project scientifically and technically • Applicationsmay besubmitted todifferent agenciesfor similar work • Awards may not be accepted from different agencies for duplicative projects

  6. Department of Defense SBIR/STTR Program Specifics

  7. DoD Phase I Process • Agencies describe R&D topics in solicitations. • Small Business Concerns prepare short (usually 25-page) proposals. Unsolicited proposals not accepted. • Agencies evaluate based on technical merit, firm’s qualifications, and commercial potential/societal benefit. • Agencies make Phase I awards. Solicitation Topics Proposal Submission About 6-9 months Evaluation Ph I award $150K – Feasibility Study

  8. DoD Phase II Process • Agencies will select Phase I awardees • Small Business Concerns prepare Phase II proposals. Uninvited proposals not accepted • Agencies evaluate scientific, technical merit, firm’s qualifications, and commercial potential/societal benefit • Agencies make Phase II awards • Expected to produce well-defined deliverable prototype • Phase II continuation funding is to encourage transition of SBIR research into DoD acquisition programs • TALK TO YOUR TPOC DURING PHASE II Phase II Proposal Submission About 24 months Evaluation Ph II award $1M – Prototype/Demonstration

  9. DoD Phase III • Commercialization phase • Derives from, extends or logically concludes efforts performed under prior SBIR/STTR funding agreements from any agency • Must be funded by sources outside of SBIR/STTR (private sector and/or non-SBIR Government) • Develop prototype into viable product/service for sale in military and/or private sector markets • Within DoD, often initial customer is prime contractor for a major weapon system or program of record Company owns IP for 4/5 Years after receipt of SBIR final report. Government has right to use for government purposes only.

  10. DoD SBIR vs STTR SBIR STTR Tax Agency Budget SBIR/STTR Budget Award Amounts: Phase I Phase II Subcontracts: Phase I Phase II Academic Component Business Employment of PI 2.8% $1.016 Billion $150K/6mos $1M/2 yrs <33% >50% Not Required >50% .30% $127 Million $150K/12mos $1M/2 yrs <60% >60% >30% N/A Stats: SBIR – 753 Topics, 12,799 proposals, 2052 Phase I Awards and 1071 Phase II Awards STTR – 126 Topics, 1646 proposals, 383 Phase I Awards and 158 Phase II Awards

  11. SBIR/STTR Participating Agencies 12 Agencies within DOD with R&D budgets greater than $100 million TOTAL for 2012 $1.016B for SBIR $127M for STTR

  12. Solicitation Timeline You may communicate directly with the TPOC (Technical Point of Contact) ONLY between Presolicitation & Solicitation Open dates. After that, questions must be posted to DoD’s SBIR/STTR Interactive Topic Information System (SITIS).

  13. Crane SBIR/STTR Topic Areas – FY12 NAVY: • Tunable Bandstop Filters for Suppression of Co-site Interference and Jamming Sources • Spectrally Compliant Waveforms for Navy Communication Systems • Automated Ultrashort Pulsed Laser (USPL) Tailoring Technology • Novel Amplifier Materials and Technology for Ultrashort Pulse Lasers • High Power Monolithic Microwave Limiters • High Performance Cost Effective Circulators/Isolators • Heaters for Electron Guns • Thermal Management Improvements for Transmit/Receive Modules • New Radar/EW Transmit/Receiver Modules and Assemblies Technologies • High Power Solid State Amplifiers • Very Wide Bandwidth Radar/EW Components and Characterization • Wide Bandwidth, High Performance Cost Effective Antenna Elements • Radar/EW Aperture Cold Plate Innovation for Increased Thermal Performance • High Thermal Performance Gallium Nitride Power Amplifier and Transmit/Receive Module Packaging

  15. Advice From Awardees • Don’t judge an agency by it’s “name” • Get to know your agency Program Manager • Read solicitation and follow instructions • Don’t depend solelyon SBIR funding • Don’t go it alone– use support systems • Win or lose – get and review evaluations • BePERSISTENT

  16. Top Five Reasons to Seek SBIR/STTR Funding Opportunities • Over$2.0 Billionavailable • It is NOT A LOAN – no repayment • Potentialleveraging tool to attract venture capital or other sources of $$$ • Providesrecognition, verification and visibility • Providesseed money to fund high risk projects

  17. Crane Research and Development BAA N00164-10-R-0001 - BROAD AGENCY ANNOUNCEMENT (BAA) RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT FOR STRATEGIC MISSIONS, ELECTRONIC WARFARE/INFORMATION OPS, AND SPECIAL MISSIONS • Key words from the solicitation "scientific study and experimentation directed toward advancing the state of the art or increasing knowledge or understanding" • Proposals are submitted and sent out to the Crane Scientific Community for review and interest If interested, that assigned group will be responsible for funding the project and monitoring the technical evolution

  18. BAA Criteria • Proposals must be concepts that haveNOT been developed or proven(even if never sold before) • Proposals must be for scientific study and experimentationdirected toward advancing the state-of-the-art or increasing knowledge or understanding • Deliverables should demonstrate the results of scientific study and experimentation rather than focus on a specific system or hardware solution. • Proposals fornon-innovative, marginal improvements are inappropriate under BAA authority and would not be considered for funding.

  19. Big Picture: Technology Transfer (T2) Legislative Purpose of T2: • Improve the economic, environmental and social well being of the US, by • Leveraginginnovation developedwith tax payer $ in the Federal Labs Lab’s “Shareable Assets” : • Knowledge (IP, tech data) • People (Subj matter experts) • Equipment (specialized) • Facilities • Other resources, capabilities T2 Mandate: • Presidential Memo Oct 28, 2011 • Law - Title 15 USC 3701- 3715 • Directives & Instructions: • DoDD5535.3 / DoDI 5535.8 • SECNAV Instruction 5700.17 ASD(R&E) T2 Definition: “Intentional communication of knowledge, expertise, facilities, and equipment, and other resourcesfor application to military and non-military systems.” Includes: • Spin-off: commercialization of DoD tech • Spin-in: DoD use of non-DoD developed tech • Dual use
