Do you have an idea that could provide benefits to our military?
Then you’re going to be really excited to hear what today’s guest have to say. We’re going to be hearing from three individuals who are part of an innovative technology transfer program in Tampa, Florida. Under an agreement with the US Special Operations Command and the Doolittle Institute, Sofwerx was created to act an intermediary for collaborating with private industry, research labs and academic partners to develop new technol ogies. In short, Sofwerx is a portal by which the commercial UAS industry can quickly access and jointly develop applications and technologies to solve the most pressing needs of special operations.
Sofwerx is sponsoring a special program called, ThunderDrone, a series of rapid prototyping events that focus on different aspects of drone technology. Industry and academia have been invited to submit their best ideas to the special operations community.
In this episode of the Drone Radio Show, Kelly Stratton-Feix, director of Acquisition Agility for the U.S. Special Operations Command. John Coglianese, ThunderDrone Lead at Sofwerx and Captain Barron Stone of the US Air Force and ThunderDrone Project Manager talk about Sofwerx, Thunderdrone and how collaborations like this can benefit the commercial drone industry.
