Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)

1099 Schriever Avenue
Arnold AFB, TN 37389
(931) 454-7081

The SBIR program was designed by Congress to encourage small business participation in Federal research and development in areas of technology, which have both government and commercial applications.

The program involves three phases including:

· Phase I, a feasibility study with demonstration,

· Phase II, development of a prototype,

· Phase III, product or process commercialization.

In addition to Phase III, AEDC utilizes the AF Commercialization Readiness Program (CRP) to further mature SBIR Phase II technologies as well.

As an Air Force Department of Defense (DoD) facility, AEDC participates in the SBIR program through the joint DOD SBIR Program solicitation.

Test Contracts

AEDC Commercial Test Contracts – AEDC conducts tests, engineering analyses, and technical evaluations for research, system development, and operational programs of the Air Force, Department of Defense (DoD), other government agencies, and industry. AEDC provides such services to Air Force, DoD, and other federal government organizations under agency-to-agency agreements. We provide the same services to industry and any other organizations under AEDC test contracts when the testing or services support DoD acquisitions or when such services cannot reasonably be obtained within the private sector. Test contracts are cost-reimbursement, advance-pay type arrangements that include the terms and conditions necessary to assure AEDC's compliance with applicable Government statutes and regulations.
