Fusing the power of prime integrators and U.S. small businesses is critical to accelerating innovation to equip the Warfighter of 2030. Enter, the Army SBIR CATALYST Program. The CATALYST Program was developed to accelerate transition of SBIR prototype projects by facilitating partnerships between small businesses, integrators and the Army. The pilot program will provide up to five awards of up to $15 million each of combined Army SBIR, Army transition partner, and prime integrator funding to small businesses that have received an Army SBIR|STTR award within the past four fiscal years (FY19 to FY22) but have not yet been awarded a second SBIR|STTR Phase II under the same project.

“Building the Army of 2030 requires close examination of our relationship with industry, and decisive action to ensure the health and resiliency of the industrial base. Developing, deploying and retaining military civilian talent, as well as procuring state-of-the-art disruptive technologies, will give our Soldier’s the decisive edge in the evolving global environment.” – Dr. Matt Willis, Director of Army Prize Competitions and Army Applied SBIR Program, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology
