SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, January 4, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Polaris Aero (polarisaero.com), a leading aviation safety software company based in Scottsdale, Arizona, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a U.S. Air Force, Phase I, Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract, sponsored by the U.S. Air Force (USAF) Research Laboratory.

This initial phase of the contract awards Polaris Aero $50,000, which is earmarked to research and define the USAF’s new technology requirements. While the award is focused solely on the USAF, the results of Polaris Aero’s research could eventually be used by all Department of Defense and federal aviation organizations.

Specifically, Polaris Aero will apply the award to research unique, military-oriented modifications to the company’s VOCUS Safety Intelligence platform. Polaris Aero is currently working with USAF aircrew on specific military requirements related to USAF aviation risk assessments, safety management, and the capture of organizational knowledge. The goal of the project is to develop a prototype safety intelligence platform for specific USAF aircraft and missions.

“As former Air Force pilots, we understand the pain points associated with military aviation, and believe our Safety Intelligence platform can improve military safety and readiness, as we’ve done for commercial aviation organizations,” said Chris Connor, Co-Founder and CEO of Polaris Aero. The Phase I contract will run through February 2022, Connor explained, after which he said that Polaris Aero will look forward to applying for the Phase II contract, upcoming in the spring.

The Small Business Innovative Research program was established by the U.S. Congress in 1982. It provides competitive, award-based resources that enable small businesses to develop new technologies and help identify ways to commercialize them. Only 25 percent of companies that applied for this round of funding were awarded a Phase I SBIR contract.
