The Small Business Innovation Research (or SBIR) program is a United States Government program intended to help certain small businesses conduct research and development (R&D). Funding takes the form of contracts or grants. The SBIR program was created to support scientific excellence and technological innovation through the investment of federal research funds in critical American priorities to build a strong national economy. For the purposes of the SBIR program, the term “small business” is defined as a for-profit business with fewer than 500 employees, owned by one or more individuals who are citizens of, or permanent resident aliens in, the United States of America.
NASC is actively involved and has been awarded numerous Small Business Innovation Research Contracts to provide next generation technologies. Please click the link below to view a partial list of these contracts.
