Air Force Will Give Squadrons Incentives for Innovation

ORLANDO — During a speech about future innovation here at the Air Force Association’s Air Warfare Symposium, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein announced the service will give every total force squadron thousands of dollars in the next few weeks to preserve the “lethality of the force” but also jumpstart new and rapid projects.

A program called the “Squadron Innovation Fund” will distribute $64 million across the service, Goldfein said. That amounts to roughly $10,000 to $30,000 per squadron with operations and maintenance funding.
