Jacob Singleton

Capt. Jacob Singleton, program manager at the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Center for Rapid Innovation, told PCMag in an interview published Wednesday AFRL is interested in incubator and accelerator programs that can help developers explore the potential military use of commercial technologies.

Singleton, who also leads Space Technology Accelerator program, said the lab currently works with accelerators that invest in space platforms while other AFRL directorates focus on other technology areas.

“Our strength is in bringing a new perspective to their product as a potential customer, letting them know what the Armed Forces needs and how they could adapt their product or service to make that happen,” he added.
