USAF Future of Wargaming

USAF Future of Wargaming

SHOWCASE PHASE

WE NEED YOUR INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS!

The Air Force Warfighting Integration Capability (AFWIC), in partnership with Advanced Tactical Acquisition Corp (ATAC) and AFWERX, is focusing on creating a game development environment that can evaluate emerging technology concepts on the battlefield in the shortest possible time frame. This will enable them to determine the merit of potential capabilities faster and with higher fidelity. We are seeking concepts that will cover a wide range of capabilities, which may include air platforms, munitions, and sensing technologies from USG, academia, or industry partners. The results from these scenarios will enable USAF leadership to make decisions on which concepts to fund to shape the most robust future force.

What's in it for you?

USAF and AFWERX possess innovation funding to designate towards exploring viable solutions and partnerships to further strengthen the Air Force. USAF has prototype funding available for individuals or companies who propose solutions to this specific challenge. Expert evaluators will carefully examine compelling challenge solutions presented within this crowdsourcing platform, and the best solutions could lead to additional prototyping, R&D and production contracts to be granted after the initial award. 

For example, the Mixed Reality AFWERX Challenge had an initial award budget of $150,000. To date, an additional $4M of prototype funding has been awarded to six companies, with an existing production contract still an open opportunity for some or all of those companies. We encourage you to get involved. Your participation could lead to official recognition for you or your company and the chance to work alongside the Air Force and other DoD agencies to see your concept mature into impactful real-life implementation!
