Earlier this year, we were humbled to be awarded a contract with the U.S. Air Force (USAF) to explore opportunities to bolster national security through the deployment of our advanced weapons detection security screening systems. This contract was facilitated by AFWERX, a U.S. Air Force program designed to foster a culture of innovation within the USAF. Encompassing multiple programs, including the Air Force commercial investment group, AFVentures, the AFWERX is intended to circumvent bureaucracy and engage entrepreneurs in Air Force programs. 

I'm delighted to share that earlier this month Evolv was selected to participate in the AFWERX Flightline Security Challenge. The AFWERX initiative to revolutionize flightline operations is made up of three tracks targeted at leveraging the best technology and services to create an integrated USAF Flightline while improving security, driving resiliency and increasing agility. These three challenges are running concurrently but are focused on the separate topics below: 

  • Airfield Maintenance and Repair 
  • Flightline Security 
  • Aircraft Maintenance Operations 

Evolv is excited to participate in the Flightline Security Challenge today in Las Vegas. At the challenge, we’ll be demonstrating how Evolv Express® provides automated threat detection and visitor screening for flightlines. The best solutions from the Flightline Security Challenge will be invited to the showcase for Revolutionizing USAF Flightline Operations, where all teams will have the chance to collaborate with each other. Selected teams also have the opportunity for private meetings with evaluators and leaders across the Air Force and Department of Defense. 

We’re honored to be collaborating with the U.S. Air Force in its mission to protect our nation. By combining our team’s expertise in risk mitigation with innovative threat detection and weapons screening technologies, Evolv’s systems far exceed what’s possible from analog technologies and legacy approaches. We look forward to bringing these benefits to even more Federal and DoD customers.
