The DARPA Service Chiefs Fellows Program (SCFP) was established to immerse outstanding military officers and government civilians into imaginative and innovative, fast-paced science and technology research. This three-month fellowship provides participants with insight into cutting-edge technology while potentially facilitating the development of future DARPA technologies.
Traditional defense contractors, corporations, and startups alike are critical parts of the innovation ecosystem in which DARPA operates, and all of these organizations—whether large or small—can serve as performers of DARPA-funded R&D to generate revolutionary technologies and capabilities. Additionally, industry partners can help transition DARPA-developed technologies from the laboratory into military or commercial applications.

Congress established the SBIR Program in 1982 to provide opportunities for small businesses to participate in Federal government-sponsored research and development (R&D). The goals of the SBIR Program are to: stimulate technological innovation; use small business to meet Federal R&D needs; foster and encourage participation by socially and economically disadvantaged small business concerns (SBCs), and by SBCs that are 51 percent owned and controlled by women, in technological innovation; and increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from Federal R&D, thereby increasing competition, productivity and economic growth.
