Capabilities Collection

In an effort to foster industry and academic collaboration with the AFRL Munitions Directorate, the Doolittle Institute is collecting Distro A (public releasable) one-page capabilities sheets to facilitate the connection of DoD scientists and engineers and industry/academia subject matter experts. This will allow for innovative and diverse thought during a variety of facilitated events, such as design sprints, technology sprints, ideation sessions, etc. Any information submitted in this form will not be shared outside of the Doolittle Institute without your consent.

We are currently collecting capabilities sheets for the following topics:

  • Electro-optical systems and materials
  • Materials in extreme environments
  • Alternative PNT (position, navigation, timing)
  • Multi-domain sensing
