This open trade show will feature advanced air mobility (i.e. flying car) technologies like sophisticated electric propulsion systems, advanced manufacturing, high-speed secure communications, as well autonomy and artificial intelligence and the associated sensor and computing hardware.
The STTR Open Topic Agility Prime focus area explores potential commercial products being developed for medical evacuation, firefighting, disaster response, search and rescue, and humanitarian relief operations.
On day two, the virtual trade show will allow for focused discussions between Agility Prime ecosystem members who have chosen to register for a virtual booth. AFWERX will facilitate connection and collaboration to these members, who will have the opportunity to team for the STTR Open Topic applications.
“The STTR Open Topic is yet another way the Air Force is determined to be the preferred partner for small business, providing non-dilutive seed funding to them and their research partners, including universities and nonprofit institutions,” said Maj. Jared Evans, AFWERX STTR Open Topic program manager and technology transfer lead at the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. “The STTR program is a critical part of our broader investment in our small business and research communities.”
