NASA announced the selection of 125 Phase II awards, totaling approximately $73 million, for its FY 1997 SBIR Program. The agency funded 40 percent of the 312 Phase II proposals received from small businesses completing Phase I NASA research.

Each NASA SBIR Phase II award may receive up to $600,000 to cover research costs over a two-year performance period. Contracts for the awards will be negotiated with 113 companies located in 26 states. The accompanying table provides the distribution of awards and firms by state: http://www.ssti.org/Digest/Tables/NASAfy97_SBIR.htm
