JADE Research Corporation (home of the SBIR CenterTM) is a Service Disabled, Veteran-Owned Busienss (SDVOB) operating as a "virtual" firm with 17 very senior associates.  The management and associates of JADE Research are all "refugees" from the downsizing of government contractor and aerospace firms common in the early 90s.  Leaving senior technical positions from such notable organizations as Martin Marietta (Lockheed Martin now), Westinghouse (Northrup-Grumman now), AAI, Oceaneering, J.J. McMullen and Environmental Technologies in the Baltimore-Washington corridor, this small group represents over 400 man years of experience with government contracted R&D, and over 300 man years of successful experience in proposal development and management.  As a group of ex-senior managers (directors of engineering, technical directors, program managers and division general mangers), we are fond of characterizing ourselves as "a bunch of chiefs with no indians to lead." 

JADE Research, then, is first and foremost an association of senior technical personnel who have earned their way up the corporate ladders of major firms to senior positions in "prior lives" and want to continue using the skill sets developed in that lifetime of effort.  The firm is a conduit for gaining access to the individual and combined skills of these persons in a traditional corporate format with formalized procedures, processes and controls in place.  These make the corporation accountable for, and assure the results of, the contracted effort.  Indeed, the work performed by JADE Research personnel is guided by standard operating/engineering procedures and is formally peer-reviewed by the other associates such that the firm (the associates) will stand behind the adequacy and accuracy of the products and services delivered. 

The firm is lead by John Davis, General Manager, who has more than 30 years of progressive experience as a Technician, Research Engineer, Department Manager, Program Manager, Director of Engineering, Business Area Director (marketing) and Division Manger in government R&D contracting.  Mr. Davis has earned advanced degrees in Engineering and Business Administration.  Davis is a leader and active participant in a number of professional and industry organizations (including IEEE, APMP, AUVSI etc.) and is an much published writer and popular speaker on the related subjects of project management and winning government R& D funding.  He is active in his church and community service organizations as well. 

Mr. Davis is supported by senior: 

    electrical
    mechanical 
    software 
    nuclear 
    quality assurance,
    reliability 
    maintainability 
    safety 
    test & evaluation
    quality assurance
            and
    manufacturing 
engineers in a format that most closely resembles an engineering cooperative

While the leadership of large government proposal efforts for major firms remains an ongoing business area, the General Manger and two of the associates are specifically engaged in developing a niche market of support services and tools to help those who wish to win funding under the SBIR and STTR programs.  Here, the disciplines developed to handle the larger proposal efforts have been translated and applied to the very specific and continuously changing needs of the SBIR bidder.  Since 1993, in a layer by layer fashion, tools and services have been developed and added to the firms offerings until today,JADE Research, through the SBIR Resource Center®, now offers the world's only complete, integrated system of resources designed specifically to support SBIR & STTR bidders.
