Two weeks left to apply for the Space and Defense Innovation Ignite Awards!
Apply by submitting a five-minute video by December 15th
Silicon Nation is excited to be a partner for the upcoming Space and Defense Innovation (SDI) Showcase and Ignite Awards, a demo competition designed to provide companies an opportunity to “show” rather than “tell” experts from across the federal sector how their technology will solve problems and help the U.S. maintain its technological supremacy.
Companies are encouraged to apply by submitting a five-minute video by December 15, 2023, telling the story of their unique innovation and its impact.
Sponsored by Second Front Systems, L3Harris, Ward & Berry, and other space and defense leaders, the SDI Showcase and Awards aims to honor companies that are making a difference in the space and defense innovation ecosystem.
Companies will compete based on company size and sector, resulting in two finalists from each category being selected by judges from throughout the industry and facing off in a live demo competition in front of acquisition and innovation leaders, industry media, investors, and industry leaders.
The technology demo competition focuses on five of OUSD(R&E)'s critical technology categories including:
Integrated Sensing and Cyber
AI and Autonomy
Renewable Energy Generation and Storage
and a “Wildcard” Category
