Weapons Pitch DayName: Weapons Pitch DayDate: April 29, 2021Event Description:
On behalf of Brig. Gen. Heath Collins, U.S. Air Force Armament Directorate Director and Program Executive Officer for Weapons, I’m pleased to invite you to watch innovation proposals from small businesses during Weapons Pitch Day on April 29, 2021. The event will be live-streamed via AirForceWeapons.com beginning at 9:00 a.m.
Weapons Pitch Day is the culminating event for small business industry engagement. In October 2020, the Armament Directorate received 213 Phase I proposals for Weapons Pitch Day. This was the largest number of proposals received for any PEO Pitch Day team. In early November 2020, over 50 technical SMEs from the Armament Directorate, AFRL, SOCOM and AFSOC participated in a 5-day evaluation sprint.
Meet the final 23 businesses as they speed pitch innovation ideas to a senior leader panel. From these pitches, those selected will be awarded Phase II contracts on the spot, ranging from 12-15 months valued at up to $1M.
