We have just been made aware of a program for SBIR winners (from any agency), and it’s from good people we know and trust from NAVAIR, a Navy Systems Command (SYSCOM). Thought you might like to know about it.
The program is SBIR Technology Transition Pilot (STTP) and is only for SBIR awardees (from any agency, even non-DoD). It centers around the needs of NAVAIR’s Fleet Readiness Centers (FRC). The mission of the FRCs (depots) is to produce quality airframes, engines, components, and support equipment, and to keep fleet aircraft operational.
The STTP objective is to find SBIR solutions to fill high-priority technology gaps and save operation and support costs. Awardees for STTP will receive funding to transition innovative solutions to FRCs. NAVAIR is seeking mature technologies that require minimal development prior to final development, testing, evaluation, and integration into the FRC’s.
NAVAIR will be releasing a Request for Information (RFI) via FEDBIZOPS in January 2017. It is anticipated that the RFI will hit the streets around Jan 9, open for submissions Jan 16, and close Feb 10, 2017.
Complete details will be in the RFI. This is not a well known program, so if you have a quality solution to one of their needs, this could be a real opportunity for you!
