The 2020 AIAA Aviation and Aeronautics Forum and Exposition (2020 AIAA AVIATION Forum) is the only aviation event that covers the entire integrated spectrum of aviation business, research, development, and technology. The 2020 forum will bring together experts to share ideas on aeroacoustics; applied aerodynamics; fluid dynamics; multidisciplinary design optimization; air traffic operations, management, and systems; and much more.

Celebrating our 20th year, the Department of the Navy’s SBIR/STTR Transition Program (Navy STP) is excited to bring the Navy’s Forum for SBIR/STTR Transition (Navy FST) to join our friends from AIAA in their Virtual Aviation Forum and showcase exciting Navy SBIR/STTR technologies with a decidedly aerospace focus. Navy FST delivers STP-supported small business solutions to government and industry leaders through Tech Talks and connections to Meet the Experts. Find information on current and past Navy STP topics, and other advanced technologies, in the Virtual Transition Marketplace (VTM). Visit NavyFST.com for details, then search the Virtual Transition Marketplace (VTM) and discover solutions to your technology challenges!


We’re inbound with exciting, innovative technologies delivering Tomorrow’s Technology Today to the United States Navy and Marine Corps. Twenty-three small businesses are ready to tell you virtually about their Navy-funded developments and solutions for your technology needs. Scroll up to view their Tech Talk recordings by clicking on the topic title. (Virtual Tech Talks are available starting June 15) Our small businesses and the FST team are ready to help you find solutions from small companies with big impact!

When can I register for Navy FST?

You do not have to register for this Navy FST event. Our event is joining AIAA by going virtual with our Tech Talks at the Aviation Forum.

Will there be another Navy FST this year?

This is our last Navy FST Event for the 2019-2020 STP cycle. Join us next spring as we showcase new and exciting technologies from the 2020-2021 Navy STP cycle.

As always, you can explore all of our current and past Navy STP technologies in the Virtual Transition Marketplace. Click here or select Marketplace (VTM) in the menu above.

How do I set up a meeting with one of your small businesses?

Find a technology that interests you in our Tech Talk section above or in the Virtual Transition Marketplace (VTM). Select the topic number in the Tech Talk section or click “Details” on the VTM tile for the project – both take you to a two-page, downloadable information sheet on the the topic, the technology developed, and contact information to learn more.
