We have personnel with knowledge to build in-house web development and phone application solutions, or leverage industry partnerships to meet the needs of our Warfighter's dev ops needs.
Implementing advances in 3D-Printing, Robotics, and Data Analysis; Phoenix Spark positions the Air Force at the cutting edge of technology solving day-to-day pain points in everyday work by enhancing capability.
Phoenix Spark leverages advances in AR/VR technology to find innovative ways to meet Warfighter's training, marketing, and operational needs.
Phoenix Spark enhances the knowledge of each Airman, providing the capability to overcome challenges as they arise on the frontline. Learn a skillset that can be used in the Squadron to foster an innovative culture.
We build relationships with private and public organizations by connecting with the best in industry, academia, and government. We learn through these partnerships how to better the Air Force for our Airmen.
Encouraging experimentation and embracing failure as learning opportunities; expanding the boundaries of what is possible.
Travis Air Force Base’s Phoenix Spark innovation cell sets out to be the leader in bridging the gap between the operator and agile organizations who are motivated to rapidly develop capabilities the Warfighter deserves.
"Innovation doesn’t happen by accident. It is fueled from a spirit of experimentation and driven by Airmen with the best training, the right tools, and a workplace environment that promotes innovation. The threat and environmental challenges presented by our adversaries require that we aggressively investigate mission-focused ideas involving machine learning, artificial intelligence, autonomy, big data analytics... AMC will make bold investments in innovation that increase readiness and posture AMC forces to remain effective in a fast-paced and challenging future."
"Innovative Airmen find better ways of doing the mission... Their intrapreneurship makes us more lethal, more efficient — they must be supported by leaders who not only remove unnecessary barriers to success, but who also lift up and champion their ideas... And because we’ve shown them we believe in their ideas, I want them to keep swinging until we find the answer."
"...We have to think about the technology and the innovation that we need 10 to 15 to 20 years from now. We have to start thinking about it and start building it right now."
