Emergency Aircrew Response Challenge

STRIKEWERX is looking for a solution for Aircrew Response Management. Command and Control requires the ability to manage United States Strategic Command aircrews. The concept is the ability to move personnel from locations on an installation to and from the aircraft into various locations with little or no warning.


Design Sprint: TE Jack Stand

DATE: Sept. 14-18


ABOUT: This Design Sprint will see industry knowhow meet air force innovation to build a cover for the Transport Erector Jack Stand used by ICBM maintenance crews. During winter, the T.E. Jack Cover becomes filled with dirt, gravel, and snow and freezes to the consistency of concrete. Airmen at the 90th Missile Wing developed a homemade solution that saves time and frustration, but STRIKEWERX will partner with industry to find an innovative, scalable solution for all missile wings in the Command.
