Air Force-Powered Accelerator Starts Accepting Proposals for Fall 24 Cohort

The U.S. Air Force Digital Transformation Office-backed Catalyst Accelerator Ogden has started accepting proposals for its Fall 2024 cohort.

The accelerator is a semi-residential, three-month program for small businesses connected with the Department of Defense and aims to support the businesses’ initiative to improve their presence in the national defense ecosystem. Proposals should be within topics of interest, which include artificial intelligence and machine learning, data fusion and integration, automation and cybersecurity, the Catalyst Accelerator said.

The program has started accepting proposals from interested parties, with the cohort start dates scheduled on either Aug. 19 or Aug. 26 and the culminating in-person Demo Day to happen on Nov. 14 in Ogden, Utah.

The DTO said that the program allows organizations to support the Air Force in adopting new solutions to address challenges it faces, including its modernization efforts and improving its cybersecurity posture.

Almost a year ago, Catalyst Accelerator started working with six companies for its 12th cohort, allowing them to develop AI and ML-powered applications for space and maritime use. Data Squared, Exosite and RS21 are some of the companies participating in the project.
