SDA Releases New Small Business Innovation Research Topic for Integrated Architecture Technology (IAT)

Original Response Date: April 12, 2022

SDA is issuing new Small Business Opportunities (SBO) under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, inviting submissions of innovative research concepts supporting the advancement of our national defense space capabilities. This SBO (SDA224-001) pertains to modeling, simulation and analysis (MS&A).

This project looks to develop and demonstrate an integrated architecture technology solution that will serve as a testbed, enabling realistic and informative mission design that facilitates the formation of traceable requirements.

This SBO is issued under the DOD Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for SBIR, 2022.4. All proposals in response to the technical area(s) described herein must be submitted in accordance with the instructions provided under DoD SBIR FY2022.4, found at the link below. SDA is currently accepting and seeking proposals for Direct to Phase II (DP2) awards.

Small Business Resources

STTR

The Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) is another program that expands funding opportunities in the federal innovation research and development (R&D) arena.

RIF

The Rapid Innovation Fund provides a collaborative vehicle for small businesses to provide the department with innovative technologies that can be rapidly inserted into acquisition programs that meet specific defense needs.

SBIR

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is a highly competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) that has the potential for commercialization.

DARPA

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency

DARPA pursues opportunities for transformational change rather than incremental advances. It does so collaboratively as part of a robust innovation ecosystem that includes academic, corporate, and governmental partners. DARPA relies on these diverse performers from throughout this ecosystem to apply multi-disciplinary approaches to advance basic research and create innovative technologies.

Contracts

Organizations within the federal government publish notices on proposed contract actions valued at more than $25,000. These notices, or contract opportunities, cover announcements through official solicitations in the pre-award process. Anyone interested in doing business with the government can use this system to research active opportunities.

Learning Center

The General Services Administration (GSA) manages federal acquisition and awards processes in 10 online websites which are now being merged into one.

DIU

Defense Innovation Unit

DIU provides revenue to companies in the form of prototype contracts (a Commercial Solutions Opening based on the Other Transaction authority) to solve DoD problems. These prototype awards can include hardware, software, or unique projects. More importantly, after a successful prototype, the company involved and any DoD entity can enter into follow-on production contracts.
