This opportunity is available to US Companies who are submitting Phase I proposals into an SBIR or STTR in the US.
To take advantage of this opportunity, the Company is requested to include Arkisys Inc. in their Phase I proposal for SBIR/STTR that would deliver a Port Embarkation evaluation for the technology, prototype or experiment proposed in the Phase I proposal. This evaluation directly supports the commercialization aspect and request for SBIR/STTR program offices to point to viability, and to accelerate the SBIR/STTR fund investment to your Company.
The Embark US offer provides 30 days of normal services afforded a hosted payload on the Port in orbit, with normal data download of information, and normal service support onboard as required. After 30 days should the company wish to continue to use and operate its payload, normal Port service charges will apply for hosting a payload at a per month rate.
This offer applies specifically to a SBIR / STTR Phase I proposal to any US government agency, regardless of agency origin or purpose.
