At the heart of the Lone Star State, AFWERX Austin is positioned within one of the nation’s most vibrant tech and entrepreneurial communities. The hub, located within the Capital Factory, serves as a channel through which pioneers in their respective industries can acquire the necessary resources to bring an idea to fruition within the Air Force. As a strategic networking organization, we provide the interface required for innovators to connect across industry, academia, and government.

We focus on developing strategic partnerships with various government entities such as Defense Innovation Unit, Air Force Research Laboratory, U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the Federal Bureau of Investigations to identify technological and procedural requirements. Through these collaborations, AFWERX Austin is able to harness the developments in technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning, additive manufacturing, robotics, virtual reality, immersive learning technologies, and blockchain to strengthen the capabilities across nationwide defense organizations.

AFWERX Austin specializes in:

  • Integrating innovative technologies with Air Force programs
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality technologies for Airmen training
  • Rapid testing and evaluation with Air Force stakeholders
