The SBIR Network has been chosen to represent the Air Force Medical Support Agency (AFMSA) in setting up and managing their SBIR Program.  This means that there will not be additional opportunity for Small Business owners to participate in this expanded program.  
AFMSA is interested in Medical and Biomedical solutions to requirements that support Air Force Major Commands such as the Air Combat Command (ACC) , the Air Mobility Command (AMC) and the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC).
