All SBIR proposals written in response to topics in this solicitation should be submitted to the above address and must be received by the date and time indicated in Section 6.2 "Deadline Of Proposal" appearing in the front part of this DOD solicitation.
The Navy's SBIR program is a mission-oriented program which integrates the needs and requirements of the Navy primarily through science and technology dual-use, critical technology topics. A total of 31 Science and Technology (S&T) areas has been identified (see Table 1). While all of these areas may not be funded equally during the annual DOD SBIR solicitations in which the Navy participates, topics will be funded according to a priority it has established to meet its mission goals and responsibilities.
This solicitation contains a mix of topics. Please read the information contained on this page of the solicitation carefully before sending your proposal. The Navy's part of the solicitation which is readable and retrievable from the INTERNET under the ONR Homepage (address--http://www.onr.navy.mil), contains topics which permit small businesses to submit their solutions to Navy requirements. We are providing proposers the opportunity to send proposals on diskette for this solicitation. From the ONR Homepage on the INTERNET on the SBIR Bulletin Board (address -http://web.fie.com/web/fed/onr/down/onrdn.013.htm), you may "pull down" the Navy part of this DOD solicitation and "pull down" into your computer an SBIR format for filling out your SBIR proposal on disk which can be mailed to the above address together with a single signed hard copy. All proposals sent on disk should be written using one of the following software packages: WordPerfect 5.1, 5.2, 6.0; WordStar 2000 1.0, 2000 2.0, 2000 3.0, 3.3, 3.4, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0; MultiMate 4.0; MS Word for Windows 1.0 or 2.0; MS Word 4.0, 5.0 or 6.0; or Display Write 4.0 or 5.0. You may ask technical questions through the SBIR Interactive Topic Information System (SITIS), see Section 7.2 of this solicitation. A listing of companies selected for award negotiations for this Navy SBIR solicitation will be listed on the INTERNET on the Navy SBIR Bulletin Board.
When preparing your proposal keep in mind that Phase I should address the feasibility of the solution to the topic. Be sure that you clearly identify the topic your proposal is addressing. Phase II is the demonstration of the technology that was found feasible in Phase I. Only those Phase I awardees which have been invited to submit a Phase II proposal by the Navy technical point of contact (TPOC) during or at the end of successful Phase I effort will be eligible to participate for a Phase II award. All Phase I and Phase II proposals should be sent to the Navy SBIR Program Office (at the above address) for proper processing. Phase III efforts should also be reported to the SBIR program office noted above.
The Navy will provide potential awardees the opportunity to reduce the gap between Phases I & II if they provide a $70,000 maximum feasibility Phase I proposal and a fully costed, well defined ($30,000 maximum) Phase I Option to the Phase I. The Navy will not award Phase I contracts in excess of $70,000 (exclusive of the Phase I option). The Phase I Option should be the initiation of the demonstration phase of the SBIR project (i.e. initial part of Phase II). The Navy will also offer a "fast track" into Phase II to those companies that successfully obtain third party cash partnership funds ("fast track" is described in Section 4.5 of this solicitation). When you submit a Phase II proposal it should consist of three elements: 1) a $600,000 maximum demonstration phase of the SBIR project (i.e. Phase II); 2) a transition or marketing plan (formally called "a commercialization plan") describing how, to whom and at what stage you will market your technology to the government and private sector; 3) a Phase II Option ($150,000 maximum) which would be a fully costed and well defined section describing a test and evaluation plan or further R&D if the transition plan is evaluated as being successful. While Phase I proposals with the option will adhere to the 25 page limit (section 3.3), Phase II proposals together with the Phase II option will be limited to 40 pages. The transition plan should be in a separate document.
Evaluation of proposals to the Navy will be accomplished using scientific review criteria. Evaluation and selection of Phase I proposals will be based upon technical merit and other criteria as discussed in this solicitation document. Due to limited funding, the Navy reserves the right to limit awards under any topic and only proposals considered to be of superior quality will be funded.
