Seeking Innovative Solutions

Catalyst Accelerator is seeking commercial and industry solutions to address the ability to monitor earth's terrestrial environments with the objective of providing improved global weather data and products to support the warfighter. Solutions may include anything from a full commercial operations floor providing services and data to the US government, to a set of niche ground and space based sensors, data, data processing, improved algorithms, and services provided directly to an Air Force operations floor or operators on the ground. Solutions are desired across a wide array of relevant technologies that demonstrate a commercial viability.

SOME AREAS OF INTEREST ARE CAPABILITIES THAT ADDRESS GLOBAL WEATHER:

But we are open to a wide range of ideas and proposals!

GOVERNMENT INVESTMENT:

An Other Transaction Authority (OTA) will be used as the contract vehicle to award companies prototype funding to further develop their capabilities. Other Transactions (OTs) are legally binding instruments that may be used to engage industry and academia for a broad range of research and prototyping activities. An OT can allow for much greater speed, flexibility, and accessibility in performing research and prototyping activities. It can also be used to design and implement innovative business models within the government that would otherwise not be feasible.
