As a proud member of the Tennessee technology innovation community, ARCS Aviation has enjoyed an incredible collaboration with our Air Force stakeholders and looks forward to bringing this technology to the military and commercial markets. We are thankful for the opportunity to share our story on the Teknovation.biz platform!
The ARCS Aviation team worked with several organizations as well as our own business developer in 2019 and 2020 that helped contribute to our team’s success, winning four Department of Defense (DoD) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contracts to date. The University of Tennessee Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) played an instrumental role in ARCS Aviation’s success in forming partnerships with DoD agencies to provide solutions to contribute to US Air Force readiness enhancement.
We are excited to announce that ARCS Aviation is one of eleven companies awarded a Phase II prototype project from the Air Force Rapid Sustainment Office (RSO) 2020 Virtual Pitch Day! We look forward to helping reduce US Air Force aircraft maintenance downtime and advancing the Air Force’s operations and sustainment to increase overall mission readiness.
In late May, we submitted our feasibility statement. On July 28, 2020, we were able to present at the RSO Virtual Pitch Day, ultimately receiving news that ARCS Aviation received the Phase II Contract. Throughout this process, ARCS has worked with subject matter experts, end-users, and the Air Force RSO to develop a solution that will apply and scale technology essential to the United States Air Force’s operation and sustainment.
The ARCS Aviation team comprises subject matter experts who know this industry well and have a deep interest in using technology to improve efficiency, enhance competency, and ultimately save lives. We will be simultaneously integrating the latest cutting-edge technologies and innovations to problem-solve through our proposed plan while providing a practical solution for the Air Force.
We are looking forward to working with the Air Force RSO and are ready to be a part of the effort to take the progressive steps of bringing the future of technology into today’s world by injecting game-changing solutions into the sustainment enterprise.
