Spark Tank Showcase highlights innovative ideas
Lt. Col. Raven LeClair, 370th Flight Test Squadron test flight commander and 461st FLTS F-35 command chief instructor test pilot, fields questions from a panel of six judges Jan. 29, 2020, during the Spark Tank Innovation Showcase at Edwards Air Force Base, California. LeClair's presentation highlighted the Fighter Optimization eXperiment (FoX), a project that involves connecting DoD aircraft to cyber-secure mobile devices equipped with customized apps that are designed to rapidly integrate advanced software and hardware technologies to the combat fleet. The event was a competition based on the larger service-wide Spark Tank campaign that allows Airmen to present innovation ideas to key agencies in order to garner support and funding.
