Upcoming Sprint: #AFSmartBases-3PT - January 2018

 

 

 

 

Design Question: How might we better leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart technologies to improve Airman’s lives in the area of health and wellness to start to improve the AF’s personnel readiness and scheduling/time management during PT testing and back-end reporting/monitoring?

When? January 23-26, 2018

Where? CyberWorx Design Studio at US Air Force Academy

Why get involved? The intent of this project is to improve the Air Force mission effectiveness and quality of life by leveraging smart and cloud technologies. This offers the opportunity to further conceptualize, experiment with, and evaluate the feasibility and viability of IoT technologies for potential Air Force “Smart Base” applications, in particular as related to health care and physical fitness.

Who are we looking to get involved? Industry partners in the fields of: Fitness Technology, Fitness Performance Measurement & Tracking, Data Management & Analysis, Internet of Things (IoT), Technology Innovation, Wearables, RFID, Health Care, Physical Training, Systems Engineering, IT Systems, Back-End Data Support, Fitness/Gym CIO

Upcoming Sprint: #PNTNext - February 2018

 

 

Design Question: How might we provide PNT independent of blue force RF signals for small unit overland navigation and timing?

When? February 26 – March 2, 2018

Where? CyberWorx Design Studio at the US Air Force Academy 

Goals of the sprint? This project asks industry, government and academic experts to team up to design ways to establish reliable land, air, or space-based precision navigation and timing (PNT) to complement and back up the global positioning system (GPS). This would work to ensure the availability of uncorrupted PNT data for military and civilian users when GPS signals are corrupted, degraded, unreliable, or otherwise unavailable. Follow-on projects will consider how we might use similar design(s) for small autonomous and combat airborne vehicle operations.

Why get involved? Like many Federal agencies, the Air Force is modernizing to enable integration of new capabilities at velocities more often associated with Silicon Valley. Partnering with the Air Force through a CyberWorx design sprint provides rapid innovation that gets to the hands of the warfighter faster while providing a unique collaboration ecosystem like no other with aerospace, cybersecurity and other industries both large and small. 

Who are we looking to get involved? Industry partners in the fields of: GPS, Satellites, Micro technology, Air Traffic control, RF Transmission/Radio Frequency, Cellular frequencies, Network engineers, IoT Receivers, Device manufacturers, Software engineers, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Algorithm Development… just to name a few!

On-Going Project - #AgileAFCyber

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Project: Cyber Risk Dashboard is a paradigm-shifting cybersecurity project initially conceived as part of a CyberWorx design-thinking project that took place in Fall 2016

What is the Cyber Risk Dashboard? 

The Cyber Disk Dashboard leverages the principles of crowdsourcing data in a unique approach to cybersecurity partially based on the cutting-edge work being done in virtual reality simulation by LinQuest Corporation.  Boecore is contributing their expertise by building out dashboards and databases while MTSi will be providing the interfaces and various applications, such as a chat feature to facilitate communications among the “crowd.”

Goals of the Project? 

This intensive collaboration between C-TRAC and these three local technology stars is expected to result in an all-new, high-level counterattack against the bad actors currently driving a multitude of cyber threats, an exciting, much-needed escalation in the ongoing battle for security in cyberspace.

Industry Partner Collaboration

Following their participation in the Fall 2016 semester project, Boecore, LinQuest Corporation, and Modern Technology Solutions, Inc. (MTSi) have been awarded R&D funds to foster collaboration and work to further develop the Dashboard under contract with CyberWorx.

 

Testimonials

“The CyberWorx Program is what both industry partners and the military have been waiting for!”

“CyberWorx is changing me and how I think. I’m thinking about my company problems differently. I have learned so much from the added value towards personal and professional development.”

“With CyberWorx the paradigm of thinking is changing. Innovation. Collaboration. These two words best describe why its value is important. “

“Getting to work alongside future Air Force leaders is very exciting. I love the energy that the Cadets bring to class.”

“I love the classroom environment. I get to be interactive and put my ideas up on the board. I enjoy the way the CyberWorx team facilitates the class.”
