NASA released its 2022 SBIR/STTR solicitation inviting small businesses to submit proposals by March 9, 2022 at 3:00 PM MT.

With a focus on translating scientific discovery and disruptive technologies, NASA is looking for innovative research into products and services that have potential for integration into NASA programs and missions, and have potential for commercialization with a societal benefit.

The SBIR/STTR programs fund early or “seed” stage research and development, providing equity-free funding at the earliest stages of company and technology development.

Informational Webinar: If you are considering submitting a Phase I NASA SBIR/STTR proposal, join on Thursday, January 20, 2022 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM MT for a virtual, interactive learning session. The webinar will cover solicitation documents, NASA’s technology needs, changes from past solicitations, tips and common mistakes, as well as time for Q&A with NASA SBIR/STTR experts.

The webinar event is free and open to the public; pre-registration is not required. Simply go to this link at the time of the webinar.
