BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La. — ¬†Modernization and innovation make the Air Force always ready, but modernizing takes time and money, while innovating requires new ideas. Air Force Global Strike Command B-2 Requirements division recently expedited this process, saving millions of dollars and six years of work by using AFWERX to apply already conceptualized innovative ideas to solve an existing problem.

In 2019 and 2020, AFWERX opened a U.S. Air Force Pilot Training and Development challenge to commercial investors and industries. Multiple companies submitted commercial solution proposals, or CSPs, they believed would improve pilot training and development. One of the solutions submitted was the T-38 Mixed Reality Training Device.
