NASA has selected 18 Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) research proposals for Phase 2 contract negotiations. The selected STTR projects have a total value of approximately $11 million. The STTR contracts will be awarded to 17 small, high technology firms in 10 states.

The goals of the program are to stimulate technological innovation, increase the use of small businesses in meeting federal research and development needs, and increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from federally-funded research. The program requires a collaborative research effort between a small business concern and a research institution. The selected firms will collaborate with 15 research institutions in 13 states.

Phase 2 continues development of the most promising Phase 1 projects. Selection criteria include technical merit and innovation, Phase 1 results, value to NASA, commercial potential and company capabilities. Phase 2 contracts receive up to $600,000 for a performance period up to two years.

Additional information about the program and a complete listing of the selected companies is available at: http://sbir.nasa.gov
