The DoD issued its 2011A STTR pre-release on January 27, 2011, which opens to receive proposals on February 28, 2011, and closes March 30, 2011 at 6:00am EST.
The solicitation is inclusive of 39 topics from the Navy's SYSCOMS.
Between January 27 and February 27, 2011, you may talk directly with the Topic Authors to ask technical questions about the topics. Their names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses are listed within each solicitation topic. For reasons of competitive fairness, direct communication between proposers and topic authors is not allowed starting February 28, when DoD begins accepting proposals for this solicitation.
However, proposers may submit written questions about solicitation topics through the SBIR/STTR Interactive Topic Information System (SITIS), in which the questioner and respondent remain anonymous and all questions and answers are posted electronically for general viewing until the solicitation closes.
All proposers are advised to monitor SITIS during the solicitation period for questions and answers, and other significant information, relevant to the SBIR/STTR topic under which they are proposing.
Complete solicitation instructions and forms are available on the DoD SBIR/STTR web site at www.acq.osd.mil/osbp/sbir/solicitations/sttr11A, and a DoD wide topic search engine is available at www.dodsbir.net/Topics/
