Commercialization Readiness Program (CRP)
The Commercialization Pilot Program (CPP) was initially established under the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006 under the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of each Military Department. The Commercialization Readiness Program (CRP) is part of the SBIR and STTR Reauthorization Act of 2012 (P. L. 112-81, Section 5001) which extends the program through September 30, 2017. The purpose of the CRP is to accelerate the transition of SBIR and STTR funded technologies to Phase III, especially those that lead to programs of record and fielded systems. This can be done through activities that enhance the connectivity among SBIR and STTR firms, prime contractors, and DoD science & technology and acquisition communities. It can also be accomplished by improving a SBIR or STTR firm's capability to provide the identified technology to the Department, directly or as a subcontractor.
