We have observed that scheduling C-17 squadron aircrew is overly time-consuming, manually intensive and increases the chance of human errors, causing unpredictability, and poor work-life balance. It also causes missed training opportunities, and ultimately inefficient use of resources.Our goal is to optimize short-term decisions while taking into account long-term second & third-order effects, ultimately decreasing the time required to prepare schedules, increasing the predictability for increased mission effectiveness.

The Air Force invests years and millions of dollars to train pilots and maintainers at bases around the globe. The Air Force is interested in exploring ways to reduce the cost of training devices/methods and increasing the speed at which trainees can progress through pilot and maintainer training programs, while achieving proper retention of information. The future virtual training environment (VTE) for pilots and maintainers serves as the end-to-end content creation and delivery platform for the program. The VTE also allows third party content development through a variety of secure sandbox environments.

The Air Force is seeking to identify innovative Digital Engineering (DE) technologies and processes that aid in transforming AF acquisition from “analog” to “digital” and allow the AF to rapidly and continuously field disruptive capabilities. Digital Engineering depends on the creation of virtual, digital models and environments that are nearly perfect, harnessing their full power to learn and experiment so the actual, physical systems are fully integrated and tested before they are produced. 

In adherence to the Air Force’s three digital acquisition principles (Own the Tech Stack, Warp from Tech Stack to Edge, eCreate before you Aviate), the DE innovations being sought include, but are not limited to virtual work environments, rapid virtual prototyping and demonstration, infrastructure operability, big data management, analysis, and visualization, linking disparate data sources and systems, digital thread and digital twin, advanced architecture tools, cybersecurity, decision analysis, model based systems engineering, model based engineering, software visualization, and cloud/high performance computing (HPC) cost effective infrastructure.
