The AFWERX Challenge is where individuals, startups, small businesses, large enterprises, academics and research labs submit solutions to specific challenges that the Air Force launches. We are trying to build out the military/business ecosystem and so most of our challenges are open, seeking to facilitate dialogue and collaboration, participants can usually see, comment, rate and community vote on each other’s submissions. Please note there is a place on the submission page where you can upload documents that will only be viewed by the Air Force and the evaluation team, we never ask for IP, trade secrets or financial information to be disclosed publicly.

These solutions will then be reviewed by AFWERX. Winning selections will be engaged for further discussions which is typically some form of an event or private meeting and possibly even eligible to be given a military contract.
