ABOUT

Chartered in 2016, SPARK is an Air Force-level grassroots program modeled to bridge the challenges of rapid innovation at the unit-level while navigating the administrative hurdles of compliance that often impede the velocity of change. It exists to inspire a culture of innovation and empower unit-level Airmen to swiftly advance development and implementation of solutions to warfighter needs.  In January 2019, Dover chartered its own SPARK hub with the creation of BEDROCK.

 

BEDROCK is Dover’s foundation for innovation, designed to leverage technology and off-the-shelf solutions to fix the military’s problems and bridge the gap between Dover's Airmen and industry experts.
