SBIR is a competitive program that encourages small businesses to explore their technological potential, as well as, providing incentive to profit from its commercialization. By including qualified small businesses in the nation's R&D arena, high-tech innovation is stimulated and the United States gains entrepreneurial spirit as it meets its specific research and development needs.

The proposal should concentrate on R/R&D that will significantly contribute to proving the feasibility of the technological approach, a prerequisite for further ED support in Phase II. Phase I awards are for periods up to 6 months in amounts up to $150,000.
