Dept of Defense Small-Business Research (SBIR/STTR) Opportunities due February 18 (expired)

There are opportunities to those engaged in research for electric and other advanced vehicles, to engage in activities related to their own research, earning some money for their efforts, as well as helping their country. Note: Some of these are restricted to American citizens, or certain “Permanent Resident” or “protected” foreigners. Others require watchful tracking of what the foreigners do.

The recxent DoD Small-Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Solicitation, 2015.1, and the recent the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Solicitation, 2015.A, ARE CLOSED. Eligible small businesses are majority American-owned and have no more than 500 employees.

If you are an American engineer, working either by yourself or in a small company, receiving an SBIR or STTR Phase-I contract can give you the opportunity for developing something for the military that may build on your previous work, and may provide you with the opportunity to advance your knowledge and experience towards your own goals, while earning money that may finance further research.

The next DoD Solicitations will be an SBIR and an STTR that will be in “pre-release” on April 24.

More details, including links, are at the web page http://SBIR.DrZev.net.

The Department of Transportation also has an SBIR program, with the current set of topics that will close on March 9.
