In June 2021, AFWERX, a US Air Force (USAF) program aimed at bringing innovation and entrepreneurs to Air Force programs, had announced a set of challenges as part of its ‘Revolutionizing USAF Flightline Operations’ initiative.
The challenge seeks proposals for new ideas related to flightline security operations, including the increasingly pressing goal of neutralizing unmanned aerial systems (UAS) that intrude into these highly sensitive areas.
That goal is part of the AFWERX Flightline Security Challenge which is reaching out to academia, the private sector, and other government agencies for novel solutions related to protecting flightlines at its air bases from unknown or potentially hostile drones.*
