The U.S. Army is enlisting small business to develop solutions to address climate change. We are dedicated to innovation; we are serious about clean tech; and we want you to work with us.  Here are two ways you can answer the call.


Award Opportunity: Submit Your Innovations in Environment-Renewing Materials

Advance Materials

Do you have a capability that will allow the U.S. Army to develop and deliver bio-based materials to replace current seat belts, seat covers and canvas covers?
The Army Applied Small Business Innovation Research Program is currently looking for solutions in Bio-Based Fabric/Material/Textiles for Military Applications with SBIR Phase I awards up to $250,000 — with potential Phase II contracts up to $1.7 million— available to U.S.-based small businesses to identify a solution in this area.  This topic is in pre-release now through April 28. Now is the time to ask your questions from our technical subject matter experts! Are you up for the challenge?

“We can no longer say we’re teetering on the brink of global warming; we are already seeing observable changes to our environment. We need to be agile and responsive to turn over game-changing solutions to address climate issues, so by partnering with small businesses, who are wheelhouses for innovation, we can develop, deliver and quickly transition technology —benefiting the Army, as well as the small businesses.”
— 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.
