Crowdsourcing innovative ideas to solve Air Force challenges
The AFWERX Challenge is where individuals, startups, small businesses, large enterprises, academics and research labs submit solutions to specific challenges that the U.S. Air Force (USAF) launches. AFWERX Challenge is a growing military/business ecosystem. Most of the challenges are open, seeking to facilitate dialogue and collaboration. On open challenges, participants can usually see, comment, rate and community vote on submissions.
These solutions will then be reviewed by the USAF. Winning selections will be engaged for further discussions which is typically an event or private meeting. Final selections might be funded for demonstration, testing, and may even be eligible to be awarded a military contract. AFWREX Challenge does not ask for IP, trade secrets or financial information to be disclosed publicly. But participants have the option to attach files (in the desktop browser view) that can only be viewed by the USAF evaluation team.
