Air Force to Focus on Business Acceleration, Incubation for Rapid Transition

The Air Force Research Lab is interested in incubator and accelerator programs that can help developers explore the potential military use of commercial technologies. AFRL Space Vehicles program manager, Air Force Captain Jacob Singleton noted in a recent interview that the lab currently works with accelerators that invest in space platforms while other AFRL directorates focus on other technology areas.

“Our strength is in bringing a new perspective to their product as a potential customer, letting them know what the Armed Forces needs and how they could adapt their product or service to make that happen,” he added.

Arch Street is pleased to work with NYSTEC which is an Air Force partner for commercialization and tech transfer through NYSTEC’s IgniteUNY initiative. We see greater interest in technology commercialization across all federal agencies and laboratories and look forward to expanding and extending the very successful IgniteU model to multiple federal research partners.
