NASA has selected 27 research proposals for negotiation
of Phase 2 contract awards for its Small Business Innovation
Research (SBIR) Program. The selected projects, which have a
total value of approximately $16 million, will be conducted
by 25 small, high-technology firms located in 13 states.

The goals of this NASA program are to stimulate technological
innovation, increase the use of small business, including
women-owned and disadvantaged firms in meeting federal
research and development needs, and increase private-sector
commercialization of innovations derived from federally
funded research.

A total of 267 proposals were submitted by SBIR contractors
completing Phase I projects. These proposals were evaluated
to determine that they met SBIR Phase I objectives and are
feasible research innovation for meeting agency needs. The
new selections are in addition to 110 proposals selected last

Phase 2 continues development of the most promising Phase I
projects. Selection criteria include technical merit and
innovation, Phase I results, value to NASA, commercial
potential and company capabilities. Funding for Phase 2
contracts could be up to $600,000 for a two-year performance

The NASA SBIR Program Management Office is located at the
Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, with executive
oversight by NASA’s Office of Aerospace Technology, NASA
Headquarters, Washington, DC. Individual SBIR projects are
managed by NASA’s ten field centers.
