NASA has pre-released its 2010 SBIR and STTR solicitations. The full combined SBIR/STTR solicitation will be available on July 19th. The NASA SBIR and STTR 2010 technical topics and subtopics support the NASA Mission Directorates of Space Operations, Aeronautics Research, Science, and Exploration Systems. To write an effective proposal, be sure to understand the purpose and focus of the Mission Directorate–understand how your proposed solution will help fulfill that specific Mission.
There will be many topics and subtopics that fall within these Mission Directorates. Full list of Topics and Subtopics will be available on the 19th. Meanwhile, take a look at last years’ 2009 solicitation topics to give you an indication of projected 2010 topic areas.
All contractual and technical questions must be submitted in writing via email to Cassandra Williams, Contracting Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org), not later than August 13, 2010. NOTE: To ensure fairness, questions relating to the intent and/or content of research topics in this Solicitation will not be addressed during the Phase 1 solicitation period. Only questions requesting clarification of proposal instructions and administrative matters will be addressed.
When the solicitation opens on the 19th, it will be posted on NASA’s SBIR/STTR site.
All Phase I proposals will be due on September 4th.
