Rapid Innovation Fund Broad Agency Announcement

The Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office is participating in the FY17 Rapid Innovation Fund (RIF) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA). The RIF program was established to facilitate the rapid insertion of innovative small business technologies into military systems or programs that meet critical national security needs. RIF also intends to facilitate innovative technologies that show a clear transition path to fielding the technology into existing defense acquisition programs. CTTSO has three requirements included in the FY 2017 RIF BAA - R&D in the Physical, Engineering & Life Science. Please visit the Defense Innovation Marketplace for submission deadlines and additional details.
