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. The DoD SBIR/STTR programs fund $1.1 billion annually in R&D projects at small technology companies that serve a DoD need and have commercial applications.
