The Department of Defense’s Prototypes and Experiments office will conduct a Solutions Meeting on behalf of the Air Force Warfighter Integration Center (AFWIC) and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Late Spring 2021, which will be conducted virtually. The meeting will provide selected innovative companies with an opportunity to make short technical presentations to government representatives about their technologies and products. There is a potential for companies to be selected for pilot projects or experimentation if their technology appears to match the needs below.

The solicitation is here – https://beta.sam.gov/opp/4037237d9be540e99d2401219de6b0ad/view?index=opp&sort=-modifiedDate&page=1&keywords=wearable&date_filter_index=0&inactive_filter_values=false

The 711th Human Performance Wing of AFRL in collaboration with the Disruptive Technologies Team at AFWIC are looking for technologies in the following areas to support Agility Operations through just-in-time training technologies that promote warfighter adaptability to support multi-mission operational requirements in austere environments:
