Engineering Services Network Inc. will assist the Defense Department's Small Business Innovation Research program under a new contract that could be worth as much as $11 million over four years.
The SBIR program is a source of technology solutions, seed money and direct access to high-tech small-business research and development firms with the goal of giving warfighters a technological edge. The program also aims to increase private-sector commercialization of innovations derived from federal R&D.
ESN will also support the Small Business Technology Transfer program.
For the contract, ESN will hire at least six employees for program management, conference management, program outreach, analysis, administration and quality assurance.
ESN has teamed with BRTRC Technology Research Corp., a woman-owned small business headquartered in Fairfax, Va., to support the contract. ESN is based in Arlington, Va.
