DARPA & Lawrence Berkeley Labs Lead the Way

From the stealth bomber to the creation of the Internet, DARPA, is responsible for the technologies that keep our great nation secure and has been a key force in creating new industries that have fueled our economic growth.

DARPA stands for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and is an agency within the U.S. Department of Defense. Their main purpose is to develop new technologies for use by the military. Amongst these programs is their Energy Program, which looks at providing alternative power and energy to our troops and reduce their reliance on petroleum and their logistical burdens. Portable power such as fuel cells or hybrid fuel cells is the goal within the agency, which will reduce the amount of weight during high endurance activities.

DARPA participates within the Small Business Innovation Research fund (SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer fund (STTR), which provide small businesses with $2.2 billion in government grants. They also participate within the Small Business Program providing prime contracting and subcontracting. With an annual budget of $3.2 billion, opportunities for small businesses are abundant.

DARPA’s Small Business division will provide small businesses with a workshop on how to engage in business opportunities with DARPA.

Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory – U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratory

Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory is responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars.

Located in Berkeley, California, Berkeley Lab is managed by the University of California. They employ approximately 4,000 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2010 is approximately $650 million, with an additional $122 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $774 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory’s overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually.

In general, the Lab’s goal is to put about half of its procurement dollars into small businesses. On Saturday, July 30th at the San Diego Convention Center, they will conduct a workshop showing small businesses how they can do business with Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory.

EngEx is a conference and exhibition focused on creating opportunities in this recession through government contracts, international contracts, and exports.
