The goal of the Navy Transition Assistance (TAP) program is to increase the rate of insertion of affordable, innovative SBIR/STTR technologies into the Fleet to meet Department of the Navy (DON) warfighter needs. The TAP — unique throughout the Federal government -- strengthens small business’ capacity to develop and mature affordable technology solutions. In meeting the Navy’s needs – Phase III funding to small business is also increased.


Navy SBIR and STTR awardees that have a current Phase II award are eligible to participate in the Navy TAP. In April, each year a list of potential participants is pulled from the SBIR database. Eligible companies are then sent an e-mail inviting them to participate in the Kick-Off meeting for the next program. If you do not receive an invitation to participate in the Navy TAP and believe that you are eligible, please contact Lyn Barnett before the Kick-Off meeting each year at Information regarding the Kick-Off meeting is posted each June on this site.


The Navy TAP has two events in the Washington DC area: (1) the Kick-Off meeting typically held in July each year, and (2) the Navy Opportunity Forum® held the first week in June of the following year. In the past decade, the Forum has emerged as a primary marketplace for matching DON needs with SBIR/STTR solutions, with heavy participation by industry and government acquisition personnel. Only small businesses that complete the TAP can present at the Navy Opportunity Forum® and have their opportunities listed for a year on the Virtual Acquisition Showcase®.


Dawnbreaker collects both process and outcome data on Phase II programs that it conducts. The outcome data are collected as part of our internal quality control procedures for a period of 18 months after the conclusion of a program. For longer term impact we use CCR data.
