Numerica recently won five new Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contracts, consisting of four Phase I awards and one Phase II award. The total value of the awards is approximately $1.2 million.
The four Phase I awards are from the Air Force, and span a variety of research areas including battle management, space situational awareness, calculated air release point navigation for supply and munitions drops, and lightweight Doppler weather radar. The Phase II award comes from NASA to further our research and development activities to test and validate collision avoidance algorithms for unmanned aerial systems.
“Amid growing competition in the SBIR program, Numerica continues to be successful by working closely with our customer’s to ensure we deliver technology solutions that addresses their most pressing needs,” said Jeff Poore, President of Numerica. “The research to be done under these programs will provide critical capabilities for national defense, and further stimulate growth in our strategic business areas.”
The SBIR program is a highly competitive research program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development that has the potential for transition to Government and commercial customers. Each year, Federal agencies with extramural research and development budgets that exceed $100 million allocate 2.8 percent of their R&D budget to these programs. Currently, eleven Federal agencies participate in the program.
