About Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, & Climate (AC4)

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) - Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)

NOAA's SBIR Program is seeking highly innovative products with excellent commercial potential. All SBIR proposals must directly beneft the NOAA mission, but should also be responsive to the greater market demands in order to be successful. All SBIR applications must be made in response to a NOAA solicitation, which will be made available once per year on this site and through the Federal Register.

Competitive Opportunity for Small Business

SBIR targets the entrepreneurial sector because that is where most innovation and innovators thrive. However, the risk and expense of conducting serious R&D efforts are often beyond the means of many small businesses. By reserving a specific percentage of federal R&D funds for small business, SBIR protects the small business and enables it to compete on the same level as larger businesses. SBIR funds the critical startup and development stages and it encourages the commercialization of the technology, product, or service, which, in turn, stimulates the U.S. economy.

Since its enactment in 1982, as part of the Small Business Innovation Development Act, SBIR has helped thousands of small business to compete for federal research and development awards. Their contributions have enhanced the nation's defense, protected our environment, advanced health care, and improved our ability to manage information and manipulate data.
