    Commercialization Readiness Program (CRP)

    CPP was created in Sec 252a of FY06 National Defense Authorization Act Identify and accelerate transition of SBIR developed

    technology

    Allows 1% of SBIR budget to administer CPP

    CPP reauthorized as CRP by amendment in Sec 5122 of the FY12 National Defense Authorization Act Supports both SBIR and STTR Programs

    Increased reporting requirements

    CRP Goals and Objectives

    Goals

    Identify and accelerate technology transition to the warfighter

    Facilitate transition of SBIR and STTR programs

    CRP processes and procedures throughout AF customer base

    Establish the use of SBIR/STTR technologies as a normal course of business

    Enhance connectivity among SBIR firms, Major Defense Contractors (MDC), and AF Centers

    Objectives

    Increase and track all CRP transition plans

    Achieve 20% of previous year awarded Phase IIs in funded SBIR Technology Transition/Maturation Plans (STTP/STMP)

    Increase and track CRP facilitated SBIR technology transitions
