DoD Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) due October 22
There are opportunities to those engaged in research for electric and other advanced vehicles, to engage in research 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 current DoD Small-Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Solicitation, 2014.3, is now in prelease, as is the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Solicitation, 2014.B. The latter is for small business working together with non-profit entities, usually research institutions.
There is a large selection of topics available. I will be selecting and rating many of these, to make it easier for readers to select topics of interest.
If you are an American engineer, working either by yourself or in a small company, receiving an SBIR 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.
More details, including links, are at the web page http://SBIR.DrZev.net.
The Department of Transportation also has an SBIR program, with the next set of topics to be published in December or January. See my other blog.
