RED 6, THE FUTURE OF MILITARY COMBAT FLIGHT TRAINING, HAS PROGRESSED TO SBIR PHASE 2
Santa Monica, CA, December 3, 2019 – Red 6, the world’s leading provider of dynamic AR solutions, successfully completed the first ever round of multiplayer AR flight demonstrations. Multiple U.S. military services, allied forces, industry partners, and investors experienced the event live from the tarmac at Camarillo airport in Ventura County, California. Daniel Robinson, Founder and CEO of Red 6 and the first foreign national to pilot the F-22 Raptor, stated, “I couldn’t be prouder of this team of innovators and world changers. With the initial prototype solution we’ve developed for the U.S. Air Force, we’ve made tremendous progress toward solving an acutely defined pain point that threatens our national security.”
Red 6 is also excited to announce that it has been awarded $1.5M in Small Business Innovation Research program (SBIR) phase 2 funding from the U.S. Air Force. “This award is a testament to the dedication and hard work of the Red 6 team over the past 18 months. In an innovative way we are solving critical problems for warfighter, increasing readiness and lethality, while reducing costs for the American taxpayer,” said Robinson.
Colonel Randel Gordon of AFWERX, the Air Force’s rapid technology development organization, stated, “The USAF has established an Open Topic Dual-Use Technology SBIR to help connect innovators and accelerate results.” He went on to state, “Red 6 won an award because we believe they have created a cutting-edge solution, aimed at maintaining our competitive advantage. Their approach marks the genesis of a new paradigm in training and offers enormous potential for the future.”
