The U.S. Air Force invites airmen to take part in a competition seeking innovative concepts addressing the military’s multi-domain challenges. The Vice Chiefâs Challenge, announced at an Air Force Association convention, will provide specific topic areas for which participants develop new applications allowing users toÂ clearly visualize the operational environment, USAF said Tuesday.
âWe want to harness the human-machine teaming technology found in the myriad of apps on portable devices and deliver a similar situational awareness capability for the Joint Force,â said Gen. Stephen Wilson, Air Force vice chief of staff.
The competition will task participants to design an app, an algorithm or a different approach to integrate and display data for use in multi-domain operations.
Aspiring participants must submit applications by Feb. 28. The competition will run through SeptemberÂ with a culmination ceremony at AFA’s next Air, Space and Cyber Conference.
