ANG TACP Branch indicated that they needed a system that allowed them to remotely coach and measure their DSG TACP’s fitness levels in preparation for the new Tier II fitness standards (as well as increase the readiness of the TACP Human Weapon System). ANG Innovation worked with AFWERX to put this need out to innovative small businesses through the SBIR program. An MOU was signed with Coach Me Plus to support their SBIR Phase II application which will give the ability to launch a fully funded (up to $750,000) project to adapt a remote coaching solution used by nearly 1/3 of professional sports teams to the needs of our Special Warfare and Battlefield Airmen community.
This project also has the potential to be adapted to help all airmen maintain a higher level of fitness and increase readiness of the force.
