The Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) in the DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) was initiated in 2004. DHS’s goal is to increase the participation of innovative and creative small businesses in Federal research/research and development programs and challenge industry to bring innovative homeland security solutions to reality. The DHS SBIR Program is focused on near-term commercialization and delivery of operational prototypes to Federal, state and local emergency responders and managers. The Program’s customers are internal DHS entities, and Federal, state, and local emergency responders and managers. Two organizations within the Department of Homeland Security have SBIR programs: S&T and the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO).
