AF CyberWorx

Cyberworx entrance

AF CyberWorx is a new venture for the Air Force, a public-private design center focused on cyber capability that melds Air Force, academic and industry expertise with state of the art technology and innovative thinking to solve wicked operational problems.

AF CyberWorx stood up in the fall of 2016 and in the first year we’ve tackled several Air Force problems using “design thinking” as our methodology. This approach focuses on rapid prototyping and teaches a willingness to take risks. We try to fail fast so that we can succeed sooner.

We are growing. We currently have the capacity to have 2-3 simultaneous design efforts underway, but we’ve been directed to expand that up to 10 simultaneous projects in campus studios and maker spaces. To support that, we have plans to build a 33,000 square foot facility as a public-private partnership.
