The Navy System Commands
SYSCOMs
The Navy's mission and resources transcend the boundaries of the sea, as it also includes advanced land based and aviation based missions. In order to address this diverse set of needs, the Navy is comprised of components known as System Commands, or SYSCOMs. Examples of Navy SYSCOMs include: Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), and Office of Naval Research (ONR).

The overall Navy SBIR and STTR programs are administered by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) but each participating SYSCOM has its own SBIR budget as well as differing guidelines pertaining to their phase II program. Technical topics for the Navy's SBIR solicitations are divided into groups representing the needs of each participating SYSCOM. The STTR program is managed exclusively by ONR.

Below is a list and brief description of the SYSCOMs that participate in the Navy SBIR program:
One of the unique goals of the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) is to foster R&D project insertion into Naval Aviation systems.
The goal of NAVSEA's SBIR program is to help NAVSEA meet its R/R&D objectives by selecting SBIR efforts that are likely to transition into acquisition programs in support of NAVSEA's mission to develop, deliver and maintain ships and systems on time, on cost for the United States Navy.
Although ONR administers the entire Navy SBIR program, it also has its own SYSCOM topics. The mission of the Office of Naval Research is to: foster, plan, facilitate and transition scientific research in recognition of its paramount importance to enable future naval power and the preservation of national security.
SPAWAR provides information technology and space systems for the U.S. Navy and Defense Department activities, while planning and designing for the future.
MARCOR is the Navy acronym for the U.S. Marine Corps. The MARCOR SBIR goal is to fund new technology research and development by small businesses, to facilitate contractual requirements and to assist the sponsor program office with the transition of new technology into the programs of the United States Marine Corps.
'The Naval Facilities Engineering Service Command (NAVFAC) is the Navy's facilities engineering professional, committed to the Navy and Marine Corps combat readiness.
The Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP).
