Pitch Day objectives
To explore, develop, and deliver technologies for air, space, and cyberspace forces, the Air Force seeks to partner with innovative small businesses and startups. The goal: To solve national security challenges, which today include payload-carrying drone swarms that can evade detection.
UAS Pitch Day at Northeastern will explore UAS and C-sUAS technologies that may fall outside the Air Force’s current fields of focus. Priorities include systems to support UAS air-traffic avionics and control software, UAS applications for environmental sensing, and C-sUAS technologies for the defense of critical facilities.
The event is sponsored by the Air Force Program Executive Office, PEO Digital, the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL), and the Tri Service C-sUAS Swarm group
