The U.S. Army xTech Program, sponsored by the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology (ASA(ALT)), launched its first ever xTechSearch competition in 2018 to redefine the future of the Army and how it identifies, awards and accelerates transformative technology solutions. Since its inception, the program has been the driving force in introducing innovative technologies from small, non-traditional businesses and entities, to grow the Army and Department of Defense ecosystems – supporting Soldiers, filling mission gaps and solving critical challenges. To date, the program has launched nearly 30 competitions, awarded over $19 million in prize money, and over $89 million in contracts and agreements for non-defense businesses and entities to form long-standing partnerships with the Army.


The Army SBIR Program

The Army SBIR Program provides a valuable opportunity for U.S. small businesses to engage with technical, acquisition and operational subject matter experts. These experts offer insight into technology needs while guiding them through the Army research and development ecosystem.

Small businesses collaborate with technical points of contact who serve as a resource as they mature their technologies for transition into Army acquisition programs. The program’s flexibility and timeliness, maximizes initial cash flow for small businesses while minimizing the time to contract.

The Army SBIR Program releases contract opportunities on a rolling basis to respond to the Army’s current and anticipated technology needs. For a list of open topics and eligibility information, visit www.armysbir.army.mil.
