Space Spark seeks to empower innovation at the operational edge by connecting end-users to lab engineers and acquirers to pursue novel solutions to their toughest challenges. Spark provides platforms through our accelerators, challenges, and colliders for our end-users, Acquisition professionals, and engineers to collide with industry and academia to innovate.

These events enable entrepreneurs, warfighters, and experts to meet, learn, and discuss current challenges. Each unique Collider focuses on an area of interest to spark interaction and further collaboration among participants.
Space Challenges are opportunities for individuals to submit solutions to specific challenges that the Space Force launches. Challenge winners might be funded for demonstration and testing and may even be eligible for a military contract.
