Work with people committed to your results

Reed has extensive experience in providing systems engineering and project management support to new technology programs such as the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON). Through a subcontract to Triad Project Management, Reed worked with the National Science Foundation (NSF) to establish concept-phase requirements, plans, interfaces, and configuration management for a complex system of systems to study long term ecological activities across the U.S. Reed experts implemented integrated technical teams, risk management processes, and requirements reviews with scientists from a wide range of disciplines (ecology, biology, oceanography, forestry, cyber technology, atmospheric, hydrology, biogeochemistry, sensor technology, and more) to develop a systematic approach to overall system design, development, and operation.About the SBIR and STTR Programs
The SBIR program was established by Congress in 1982 with a statutory purpose to strengthen the role of innovative small business concerns in Federally funded research or research and development (R/R&D ). The STTR program is a sister program to SBIR, established by Congress in 1992. A difference in the programs is that the STTR requires the small business to have a research partner consisting of a University, Federally Funded Research and Development Center, or a qualified non-profit research institution.

SBIR and STTR are Three-Phased Programs
The programs are designed in a three-phased award process. Phase I awards support exploration, merit or feasibility of an idea or technology. Phase II awards results to develop and evaluate commercial potential. Phase III awards provide for product commercialization. For more information, visit the SBIR/STTR SBA site.

SBIR/STTR Participating Agencies
The following Federal departments and agencies set aside a portion of their R/R&D funds for SBIR awards to small business. Six Federal agencies reserve a portion of their funds to be awarded via the STTR program (*):

Department of Agriculture
