NSIN, the F-35 Lightning II Joint Program Office, and the AFRL Information Directorate (RI), will host an event called the F-35 JPO Pitch Day, in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, November 21, 2019 from 0730-1700 @ The National Housing Center located at 1201 15th Street Northwest in Washington DC. This NSIN Starts program will showcase a mix vendors who can deliver quick wins juxtaposed with vendors who have long-term promise in utilizing fringe technology.

Selected participants will present short pitches demonstrating the potential of ventures working at the intersection of national security and scalable commercial opportunities. Startup finalists selected to present at the event will have the opportunity to address high impact private sector investors, defense and security industry representatives, and government leaders and become eligible for future NSIN-sponsored opportunities.

The F-35 Joint Reprogramming Enterprise (JRE) is tasked with providing hardware and software used to develop Mission Data Files. Mission Data Files enhance the pilot-vehicle interface, update threat parametric data with intelligence information, and enable operational functions that affect mission employment. The F-35 JPO is looking for innovative software technologies, compatible with existing containerized development pipelines and software product, that will increase the efficiency of software and mission data file development.
