FAAR Landing Page

PROJECT FAAR

While the U.S. Army has advanced considerably since WWI, our approach to storing, shipping, and loading munitions has not fundamentally changed in the past 100 years. Meanwhile, the commercial market has driven incredible advancements and efficiencies through automation and robotics. We are ready to apply these innovations to improve performance — while reducing costs and human effort — of field artillery weapon supply chain systems and processes. If you have a potential solution that could address our needs, we want to learn more.

THE FAAR COHORT

In January 2020, AAL will kick off a 12-week, cohort-style program focused on the FAAR problem. The program is designed for small or nontraditional businesses — that is, companies that don’t typically work with the Army — that own unique, applicable technology and are interested in growing a new line of business into the Department of Defense. Companies selected to participate will receive $150k in non-dilutive capital to develop and present a capability brief to Army stakeholders and potential strategic partners.

While the application window to join the FAAR cohort has now closed, there will be more cohorts coming — each focused on a specific Army problem. Stay tuned for more information on these cohorts and how to get involved.
