UAS Way Forward

UAS Way Forward

Date: September 7-8, 2022

Location: CyberWorx Studio, U.S. Air Force Academy

Operation realities are demanding a new generation of technologies and capabilities. Remotely piloted systems are going to increasingly transition from being automated to the autonomous realm (both offensively and defensively). This will create technology hurdles that must be taken into account.

Future of UAS in the AF:

Aided by commercial industry advancements and use cases, understand the future operational requirements, and discuss how unmanned aircraft are going to meet these new demands as part of the overall airpower inventory. We hope to discover what might be wholly revolutionary, and what might expand from proven success.

Future of UAS at USAFA for Cadets:  

Discover current state, assess where needs are being met and where improvements could take place. Discuss shifting, improving, or integrating classes, innovation centers and identifying activities that will enhance cadets’ education. Find actionable paths forward that will introduce and reinforce current USAFA initiatives – Institute for Future Conflict.

We are seeking industry and academia partners with knowledge and expertise in Sensors, Hive/Swarm Technologies, Counter UAS, Autonomy, and Military Fiction Writing.

Project Cobalt Design Sprint

Sponsored by NORAD and USNORTHCOM to tackle the problem of data fusion across domains. Experts in industry will work alongside members of the U.S. Military and Government to give the project both experienced and fresh perspectives to answer the following question:

How might we integrate cyber intelligence data into the cyberspace operations ecosystem to improve cyberspace operations and intelligence analysis for the NORAD and USNORTHCOM (and all of DoD) missions?

Missile Warning Design Sprint

We are hosting a design sprint in support of NORAD/NORTHCOM and the Pathfinder Program office as they examine the missile warning system. Next Gen Architecture in the air domain has a lot to offer the Air Force by way of increased collaboration and data, decreased complexity, and removing redundant efforts. This effort continues the Air Force’s dedication to constantly improve its capabilities in a rapidly evolving global environment.

How might we improve and fuse data for the N/NC missile warning system to integrate with Next Gen Architecture?
