HOUSTON, November 2, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Nebula Compute Inc., a developer of high-performance cloud computing platforms intended for space and networking in orbit, has announced that it’s been selected by AFWERX for a Direct-to-Phase II contract. This contract will focus on On-Orbit computing to address the most pressing challenges that the Department of the Air Force (DAF) currently faces.
The Air Force Research Laboratory and AFWERX have partnered together to streamline the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) process by accelerating the small business experience through faster proposal to award timelines, changing the pool of potential applicants by expanding opportunities to small business and eliminating bureaucratic overhead by continually implementing process improvement changes in contract execution.
The DAF began offering the Open Topic SBIR/STTR program in 2018, which expanded the range of innovations the DAF funded, and Nebula Compute will now start its journey to create and provide innovative capabilities that will strengthen the national defense of the United States of America.
“We are excited to be part of the future Space Force Architecture, advancing the Defense, JADC2, and Enterprise Data Architecture capabilities,” says Nebula Co-Founders Michael Bloxton and Peter Stridh.
