Major Changes to the DoD SBIR/STTR Website
The DoD is transitioning from their old legacy SBIR/STTR website to a new one (DSIP). During this transition process the DoD will use a portion of the old website for instructions, topics, & SITIS, and the new DSIP website for submissions and submission instructions.
DoD SBIR Website Portal Addresses
You can reach the DoD's Help Desk at 703-214-1333 or by email at DoDSBIRSupport@reisystems.com

Eventually the legacy site will be closed and all DoD SBIR/STTR BAA activity will be on the new DSIP site.

DoD SBIR 20.1 BAA - Topic N201-X02 Webinar
As part of the DoD SBIR 20.1 BAA, the Navy hosted a webinar on January 10th to address any questions related to Topic N201-X02 - "Naval Depot Modernization and Sustainment" [View Topic].

The Department of the Navy (DON) sustainment community is urgently seeking modern tools, solutions, and processes to reliably and safely get DON assets back in the field as quickly as possible. Technologies for maintaining and sustaining ships, aircraft, and ground vehicles have advanced significantly in the past 50 years. Yet, the DON sustainment community has struggled to identify, pilot, and integrate those same technological advances into public shipyards, fleet readiness centers, and ground vehicle depots.

As DON platforms increase in complexity and scale, demand outstrips the capability of current maintenance systems resulting in multi-year delays of national assets, such as the USS Boise.

This webinar was conducted by Mr. Stephen McKee, the N201-X02 Technical Point of Contact (TPOC). Mr. McKee provided important background information for the first forty five minutes and thereafter addressed questions from attendees.


You may submit additional questions related to this topic via the DoD SITIS system at sbir.defensebusiness.org/topics?topicId=307499.

 

Navy Transitions Spotlight is Here!
The new Navy Transitions Spotlight Newsletter has just been released.

In this edition you will learn how the Navy's SBIR program helped Hydronalix, a small business, launch and mature EMILY (Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard), a life saving technology developed by Hydronalix.

This Navy Transitions Spotlight issue shows how SBIR investments to Hydronalix led to the development and refinement of the EMILY system, which is actively used as a lifesaving device around the world. With the help of SBIR, the EMILY technology continues to evolve and serve many additional needs and markets.

 

Posting of Navy FY-19.3 SBIR Selections
In order to keep small businesses informed about the Navy's 19.3 SBIR proposal selection status, the Navy posts a list of SBIR/STTR "Selectees" as they are chosen.

A selectee is a company selected for further consideration, meaning that the proposal is of interest, but the final decision and contract negotiation is not complete. Being listed as a selectee on this web site is NOT a notification of contract award.

The list of selections is an ongoing process that may take a few months to complete. You can register your email address on the 19.3 SBIR selection page to receive email notifications of updates to the lists. Your email address is not shared with anyone, and is deleted after the selection process is complete.

You can browse the Phase I Selections using the link below, and view earlier selections from the Browse Phase I Selections box on the right.

What resulted from the DoD's investment of $14.4 billion in small business R&D funding provided to companies nationwide via 16,959 separate SBIR/STTR Phase II contracts?

In all, this study presents the economic outcomes of 16,516 of the 16,959 DoD SBIR/STTR contracts--over 97 percent.

ASN (RD&A) Geurts Issues Memo on Small Business Utilization for a Strategic Advantage
James Geurts, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development & Acquisition (ASN (RD&A)) brings to Naval warfighters his rich SOCOM experience in delivering innovation, faster, through new collaborations and inventive practices.

Mr. Geurts' most recent guidance to DoN acquisition teams on small business and SBIR/STTR conveys the imperative role Small Business play as DoN team members and their contribution to DoN's success in meeting the National Defense Strategy (NDS). As such, the instruction calls for Acquisition Commands and Program Executive Officers (PEOs) to prioritize utilization of Small Business and includes these critical SBIR/STTR points:
  • DoN acquisition teams focus on reviewing and assessing SBIR/STTR capabilities in developing acquisition strategies - and such strategies should address incentives for SBIR/STTR use.
  • Acquisition Commands and PEOs should leverage "agile, time-saving authorities" of the Phase III award process - without further competition - where this action meets performance and affordability mandates.
  • The memo concludes with an emphatic challenge: "Enhanced implementation of the Small Business Program will require .changing the way we do acquisition."
