The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is a highly competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) that has the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the 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.
During Phase I of the NOAA SBIR Program, small businesses are invited to submit innovative research proposals in response to the priorities outlined in the latest NOAA Strategic Research Guidance Memorandum (SRGM). NOAA's research priorities include (i) Integrated Earth System Processes & Predictions, (ii) Observing System Optimization, (iii) Decision Science, Risk Assessment & Risk Communication, (iv) Data Science, (v) Water Prediction and (vi) Arctic Research.

A description of each of these priorities can be found on the memorandum, located at http://nrc.noaa.gov/CouncilProducts/StrategicResearchGuidanceMemorandum.aspx.

It's in this phase where the small business establishes technical merit, feasibility and proof of concept for the proposed innovative solution. Any organization or individuals receiving awards under Phase I are eligible to compete for a follow-up Phase II award.
