This solicitation identifies the objectives for the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program Phase I projects, deadlines, funding information, eligibility criteria for projects, and instructions to submit a complete proposal package.
The NASA SBIR program focuses on transforming scientific discovery into products and services through innovations that have potential for infusion into NASA programs and missions, potential for commercialization into NASA relevant commercial markets, and have a societal benefit.
Unlike fundamental research, the NASA SBIR program supports small businesses in the creation of innovative, disruptive technologies and enables the application of research advancements from conception into the market.
Different from most other investors, the NASA SBIR Program funds early or "seed" stage research and development that has commercial potential. The program provides equity-free funding at the earliest stages of company and technology development.
