Applications for the next BRAVO Hackathon, BRAVO 1 Canary Release, will close June 21 at the close of business. Any applicants, other than necessary support personnel, received late will be waitlisted as determined by space availability. Canary Release will kickoff July 18-22 at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, Patrick Space Force Base, Florida, and Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.
