AFWERX AFVentures Launches New Funding Programs for Space Technology Submissions

AFWERX and SpaceWERX Issue Call for Space-Related Technology Submissions

The Department of the Air Force’s commercial investment arm AFWERX AFVentures has announced the release of two funding programs aimed at supporting the delivery of capabilities needed by the Department of the Air Force (DAF). These programs, known as Strategic Funding Increase (STRATFI) and Tactical Funding Increase (TACFI), offer financial assistance to transition Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) contracts into Phase III work.

The STRATFI program offers funding between $3 million and $15 million over 48 months, while TACFI provides between $375,000 and $1.9 million over 24 months. These opportunities are available for Small Business Concerns with Phase II SBIR or STTR contracts that have been running for at least 90 days or completed within two years of submitting a capability package.

Interested parties must submit a capability package by the deadline of April 12, as outlined in the latest notice of opportunity. Under the program year 24 rules, only an SBC’s government point of contact is eligible to submit the package on their behalf. Stay updated with AFWERX AFVentures to learn more about the support available for space technology submissions.
