DoD Phase III
• Commercialization phase
• Derives from, extends or logically concludes efforts
performed under prior SBIR/STTR funding agreements

military and/or private sector markets
• Within DoD, often initial customer is prime contractor for a
major weapon system or program of record
Company owns IP for 4/5 Years after receipt of SBIR
final report. Government has right to use for
