$500,000 Grant To Small Businesses To Work On Missile Technology

Funds early stage research and development by small businesses that support BMDO’s mission of developing innovative technology for the purpose of enabling a defense against missiles in flight. BMDO’s Small Business Innovative Research Program typically provides up to $60,000 over the course of six months for Phase I projects (for a feasibility study to evaluate the scientific and technical merit of an idea) and up to $500,000 over the course of two years for Phase II awards (demonstration phase in which prototypes are built and tested). For general inquiries, contact the DoD SBIR Help Desk by phone (800-382-4634) or by email (sbirhelp@teltech.com). In addition to following DoD-wide instructions in the program solicitation, proposers must also follow BMDO’s instructions for submission of proposals. Specific requirements and guidelines can be found at the website listed below. Unsolicited proposals will not be accepted. Only businesses that are independently owned, controlled, and operated for-profit and with 500 or less employees are eligible to apply. Each organization submitting a proposal must qualify as a small business for research and development purposes. The primary employment of the principal investigator must be with the small business at the time of the award. A joint venture must provide documentation confirming that it can act as a single legal entity for purposes of a grant awarded under the SBIR program. Only awardees in Phase I are eligible to participate in Phase II (by invitation only).
