Diverged assimilation converging and accommodating
The Air Force encourages businesses to consider a Fast Track application when they can attract outside funding and the technology is mature enough to be ready for application following successful completion of the Phase II contract.
On active phase II awards, the Air Force will invite a limited number of Phase II awardees to apply and compete for a Phase II Enhancement to address new unforeseen technology barriers that were discovered during the Phase II work.
All questions concerning proposal submissions, Fast Track applications and requirements, and award/contracting issues should be directed to the appropriate agency SBIR Program Manager listed beginning page AF-5.
Prepare a report containing the application tree and the investment decision matrix with the proposed selections for phase III.

Only one cost proposal for the entire nine-month contractual period of performance will be accepted.
a) the soundness, technical merit, and innovation of the proposed approach and its incremental progress toward topic or subtopic solution; b) the qualifications of the proposed principal/key investigators, supporting staff, and consultants (qualifications include not only the ability to perform the research and development but also the ability to commercialize the results) and c) the potential for commercial (government or private sector) application and the benefits expected to accrue from this commercialization.
Latham, Air Force Research Laboratory/Directed Energy Directorate, unpublished, copies of this document are available on request, contact Dr Latham, [email protected] Incorporate information about the structural modes of airborne/space-based platforms into controller design to improve feedback loop performance of optical acquisition, tracking, and pointing (ATP) systems.
For airborne/space-based platforms, a lighter weight structure can lower total mission cost and increase acceleration capabilities, and thus improve performance of related Acquisition, Tracking and Pointing (ATP) subsystems.
Develop commercial partnership interests for a Phase III production program.5. A dynamic optical diagnostics system is needed (including development of a data analysis tool) to create the capability for the Airborne Laser (ABL) to effectively detect and isolate faults and to provide diagnostics data on demand to maintenance personnel for rapid correction of optical component failures.
