According to the SBIR and STTR Policy Directives: “The purpose of this technical assistance is to assist SBIR awardees in (A) making better technical decisions on SBIR projects; (B) solving technical problems that arise during SBIR projects; (C) minimizing technical risks associated with SBIR projects; and (D) commercializing the SBIR product or process.” Dawnbreaker specializes in providing commercialization assistance. In August 2018 through the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018 some modifications were made to this concept. A new term was introduced called Technical and Business Assistance (TABA). How this will be implemented is under review and will be gradually introduced in solicitations during FY19.
