This application is for startups to work with the MIT Innovation Initiative on the Air Force’s Open Topic STTR solicitation. All queries are either specifically pulled from the federal application, are required by MIT, or assist the MITii selection team in determining which companies we select. None of your answers will be shared for purposes other than preparing MIT to contract with your startup for an upcoming SBIR or STTR contract.

While MITii will receive applications on a rolling basis, we intend to select those companies with which we are applying before each of the Air Force’s Open Topic Pre-release dates.

The next Air Force Open Topic submission windows are:

  • Air Force SBIR 21.1 / STTR 21.A Solicitations:
    Federal pre-release – November 24, 2020
    Federal application opens – January 6th, 2021
    Federal application closes – February 10th, 2021
  • To Apply w/ MITii as a Subcontractor:
    Completed MITii application due – January 8th, 2021

Please note: If your firm does not already have DUNS or CAGE number, please start to obtain those immediately. Together, they can take between 4-6 weeks to receive.
