For nearly 20 years, BRTRC has provided technical and administrative services to the Department of Defense (DoD) in the analysis and management of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, as well as the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program, efficiently integrating and managing diverse capabilities to provide comprehensive training, analysis, outreach, and web-based solution application development for these programs.

BRTRC leverages best practices from our longstanding SBIR/STTR policy, guidance, analysis, and reporting support to the DoD (Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD)/Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP)). We provide SBIR/STTR program execution support to the Army, Navy, Air Force, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, U.S. Special Operations Command, Defense Threat Reduction Agency, Chemical Biological Defense, and OSD.
