AFWERX and SpaceWERX Issue Call for Space-Related Technology Submissions

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

Interested parties must submit a capability package by April 12, as outlined in the latest notice of opportunity. According to the Air Force Materiel Command website, 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.

The STRATFI program is intended to support long-term development projects that require significant funding and resources, while TACFI provides short-term funding for smaller projects that can be completed within two years. Only an SBC’s government point of contact is eligible to submit a package on their behalf under these programs’ rules. Stay updated with AFWERX AFVentures to learn more about how these programs can help support space technology submissions.
