The Air Force Research Laboratory/Space Vehicles Directorate (AFRL/RV)-sponsored Catalyst Accelerator will host a 4-day pitch event where 24 startups and small businesses (to include our 8 cohort companies) will have the opportunity to present their innovative, dual-use, space or space-related technologies, ideally with a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 4 or higher to Government tech scouts. The event will also include fireside chats or panel discussions and networking opportunities with the scouts. On the final day, the participating companies will be able to display their technologies in a Tech Gallery for the Government tech scouts as well as the Space Community at large.
