The Defense Innovation Marketplace provides a centralized resource for the Department's Acquisition and Science and Technology professionals on information about industry's Independent research and development activities.
In five easy steps, your company has the opportunity to share your organization's Research and Development
projects with a broader DoD audience than previously possible. Please note: This is NOT a place to enter
DoD funded projects.
The following is an overview of the steps you can prepare to answer before you enter into the secure Marketplace:

As of November 1, 2014, the database transitioned from Defense Technology Areas to Communities of Interest.
Pursuant to DFARS 231.205-18(c)(iii)(C), DTIC will update the IR&D Submission process to add a new proposed project input to the input form. In the interim, you will have 2 choices:
If you have not contacted a knowledgeable Department of Defense member you should:
Use the current IR&D input form to submit new proposals, and in the Status of Effort Field, select New Start. In the Title field, type NEWPROPOSAL: (all caps, one word with colon). Then, select only one targeted organization from Target Agency field. Complete the remainder of the fields as necessary (required and optional).
If you have already contacted a knowledgeable Department of Defense member about a New Proposal you should:
Use the current IR&D input form, and in the Status of Effort Field, select New Start. Do not add NEWPROPOSAL: in the title. Attach a PDF with the Department of Defense member's full name and date of interaction. Please name the PDF file: DFARS Communication. Complete the remainder of the fields as necessary (required and optional).
As we develop and implement the new submission tool we will use this page to keep you informed.
