Base Security and Defense
Help us protect the people and critical resources on our Air Force bases by enhancing our security and strengthening perimeter defenses.
WE NEED YOUR INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS!
This challenge, one of several related to the Base of the Future initiative, utilizes the building and restoration of new installations to examine and improve the existing security and defense systems that protect the people and critical resources on them. Air Force bases have large perimeters that require safeguarding from active shooters, explosives, cyber risks, and many other potential threats. To improve and modernize installation security and defense, we are calling on critical thinkers and inventive problem-solvers to help us construct an agile, swift and responsive base of the future. Are you with us?
