In collaboration with the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)/Small Business Technology Transition (STTR) Program, Mile 2 continues to expand and implement artificial intelligence (AI) prototypes developed under previously awarded SBIR Phase I and Phase II contracts to rapidly explore new technologies and concepts supporting the AF SBIR/STTR mission.  The purpose of the collaborative center of excellence is to enable users and developers to work in a highly immersive and collaborative manner to develop/implement AI tools and prototypes.  The ability of the Mile 2 and AF Team to collaborate in close proximity will significantly enhance the real-time development to create, test, and iterate on key features of the software, resolving issues/bugs as they occur. This hand-in-hand collaboration will lead to a much faster time to market and seamless transition to real-world use.
