					What the Navy Does to

Assist and Accelerate

        To Phase III
           John Williams
 Director, Navy SBIR, STTR & T2 Programs


           September 2010
       Key Areas that Help
• 1% CPP 1% Funds to provide assistance
  to SBIR/STTR Firms
• Phase II.5 Program
• Transition Assistance Program (TAP)
• New TRIMS software tool
• PEO Involvement
• Strong SYSCOM SBIR Offices
       Navy SBIR/STTR Program Goals
Two main goals of Navy SBIR/STTR Program


 – Use small business to develop innovative R&D
   that addresses a Navy need

 – Commercialize (Phase III) that technology into a
   Navy platform or weapons system

                  Historical Perspective
    From 2006 PL 109-163 (CPP Legislation) to Present

• 2006 - CPP legislation goal “accelerate the transition of
  technologies, products, and services developed under SBIR to
  Phase III, including the acquisition process.” It allows use of
  1% of SBIR funds to “manage” the “acceleration” efforts, but does
  not provide any special CPP funds for the Phase II awardees.


• 2007 - Navy experimented under SAT (SBIR Accelerated
  Transition) by providing substantially higher SBIR funding to Phase
  II projects, either as a mod or second phase II award.


• 2007 to 2009 - SYSCOM’s used CPP 1% to develop processes and
  tools to address goal of “accelerate the transition … to Phase III”

• 2010 – pulled SYSCOM processes together based and develop
  Navy-wide terminology and rules for accelerating from Phase II to III.
                What is CPP?
               What is Phase II.5?
• CPP is the 1% SBIR Program funds Service is allowed
  to use on “accelerating” activities with
   – In-house Navy staff to provide additional support
   – Support contracts that help the SBIR and STTR firms
      No CPP funding goes to SBIR or STTR Firms

• Phase II.5 is SBIR or STTR Program funds, above
  normal < $1M funding Phase II amounts, that is
  provided to the SBIR and STTR firms
    Phase II.5’s require additional levels of support,
      due diligence, agreements and non-SBIR/STTR
                   funding commitments
  Where Did Phase II.5 Originate, How is it Funded?
              September 2007 CNR Memo

• Per 7 September 2007 CNR Memo - “20% of funds for
  CPP “Phase II.5” T&E matching projects” to assist in
  continued technology development and maturation of
  successful Phase II projects.
• ~ 80% of the 2.5% Extramural R/R&D Tax will fund the
  normal Phase I & II process.
• ~ 20% of the 2.5% Extramural R/R&D Tax will be set
  aside to fund Phase II.5 efforts
• Up to 1% of the 2.5% Extramural R/R&D Tax set aside
  for CPP Admin funding

   How do I get Phase II.5 Funding?
• The SYSCOM SBIR PM, Technical Monitor and PEO
Sponsor decide which Phase II’s receive Phase II.5 funding

•The firms are identified in different ways at each SYSCOM
but the request and start of due diligence process is internal

•How can a firm best prepare themselves for a Phase II.5?
   •Know who wants your technology in Phase III
   •What you need to overcome to get there
   •Address Risk, Funding, Competitive approaches, Partnering,
   Licensing, etc…
   •Plan transition early and often

SBIR WebTRIMS
   Purpose of SBIR WebTRIMS
• Designed to aid SBIR companies in taking their
  technologies to production by:
  – Identifying weaknesses that could potentially prevent
    successful production of the technology
  – Providing current information and references on each
    topic area that will help SBIR firms correct any
    weaknesses
  – Potentially identify companies that would benefit from a
    site assist survey
• The purpose is to improve the commercialization
  rate of SBIR technologies
• WebTRIMS is not an Audit tool – its purpose is to
  assist SBIR firms in navigating through the SBIR
  Program
           Usage Information
• When a firm sets up an account, their user name
  and password unlocks only the program
  segments that apply to where they are in their
  program
• There are optional elements to cover topics such
  as human subjects, STTR issues, etc.
• By answering questions within each element, the
  tool will identify potential obstacles to
  commercialization and give information to
  address those obstacles
• Initial feedback from approximately 50 firms
  asked to evaluate the tool is positive29
