A grassroots innovation program that empowers Airmen to bring tomorrow’s tools to the Warfighter today
Spark leverages the ingenuity of Air Force intrapreneurs at the base level and non-traditional partners to create unique opportunities for the military’s operational experts to collaborate with the top problem solvers in industry, academia, and the government.
With the support of AFWERX, Spark is building a decentralized network of Air Force bases around the world to execute locally generated ideas and projects. These Spark Cells give Airmen access to resources and support across the AF innovation network. The innovation network enables rapid communication and scaling across the enterprise.
Spark's goals are to:
- Further a culture of innovation within the Air Force
- Provide Airmen with the pathways and resources to solve tactical-level pain-points
- Create a robust network of experts from industry, academia, and the government
