The U.S. Air Force is short 2,000 pilots and needs to train new aviators faster but with the same quality. To do this, the USAF has committed to revolutionizing pilot training with the launch of the “Pilot Training Next” initiative.

The challenge received 150 proposals from leading companies around the world. Sixteen were selected as finalists to compete in the solution showcase shootout in Austin, TX with the award going to five companies. NAI and their flagship product, NeuroTracker was selected based on its scientific validation of cognitive assessment and performance. NeuroTracker is a world leading cognitive assessment, training and rehabilitation platform in use by Special Operations Forces (SOF) across the world.

Following this accomplishment, NAI will be working with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) and other partners to bring leading edge cognitive training solutions to the United States Air Force.

Former Air Force T-38 Instructor Pilot and NAI Advisory Board Member, Bob O’Malley commented on the initiative explaining:

“I am impressed by the approach taken by the US Air Force and SAIC with its Pilot Training Next initiative. Involving commercially available technologies and techniques to innovate its pilot training program is aggressive, but timely. Employing tools like NeuroTracker will improve pilot cognitive skills allowing the Air Force to produce pilots faster and better”

The technologies and solutions adapted through the AFWERX challenge may be the foundation for a total redesign of the Air Force Pilot Training Program, with the potential to extend to all branches of the US Military.
