The DoD continues to have an unusual pre-release process to their 20.1 and 20.A SBIR/STTR BAA. DoD has created a new SBIR/STTR website but it will take a while to transfer all the data from their legacy site to the new one.
For the mean time you have to traverse both sites for different purposes: The legacy site is https://sbir.defensebusiness.org/ and that contains the topics and some instructions. The new site is www.dodsbirsttr.mil/ and that will be for submissions once the 20.1 and 20.A opens on January 14, 2020.
Stay tuned for details.
Congratulations to Brittany Sickler, the SBIR Person of the Year for 2019!
