About the SPARTN Program

Powered by SBIR. Backed by AAL.

SPARTN unites Army SBIR funding and AAL's business model to create a program that moves — and pays — at the speed of business. SPARTN helps U.S.-based small businesses advance their technology while supporting Army modernization priorities.
