Bridging the Gap Between Research & Prototyping

S²MARTS Research is creating a more connected and streamlined Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) ecosystem, uniquely positioned to better establish the relationship between research and prototyping. Operating under the 10 U.S.C 4021 authority, the S²MARTS Research consortium can carry out research projects that meet the needs and requirements of the government at any stage, allowing for a natural transition from research to prototype development.

Utilizing U.S.C. 4021 through S²MARTS Research, the Department of the Navy (DoN) is seeking research to expand their capability to design, process, characterize, and test materials for research and development.

Why S²MARTS Research?

This unparalleled coalition of services will open the door for academically focused institutions to contribute their technology in support of the mission. By engaging more innovators, mapping projects from start to finish, and combining the same technology capabilities as S²MARTS, projects will naturally transition through each phase, delivering a streamlined path of prototype development.

How to Join

S²MARTS Research was designed to open the door for new innovators who previously would not have been able to support projects in an academic or research-focused capacity. Under NSTXL’s open consortium model, current members will enjoy immediate access to these opportunities without additional fees or membership requirements. Innovators who wish to only operate under the S²MARTS Research program will be offered free membership.
