Bluescape has received a contract to help the U.S. Air Force adopt a virtual work platform for data sharing and collaboration under phase 2 of the Small Business Innovation Research program.

The San Carlos, Calif.-based company said Thursday it will combine the platform with the Department of Defense's Commercial Virtual Remote environment to support a DoD-wide collaboration technology ecosystem.

The branch awarded an SBIR Phase I contract to the company last year to develop a technology for potential use in multidomain command-and-control operations.

“We are excited to be growing our partnership with the U.S. Air Force in building the information environment of the future–one which enhances the speed and accuracy of decisions across dispersed teams,” said Peter Jackson, CEO of Bluescape.

Jackson added that the company seeks to help organizations establish a common operating picture from streaming data.

Bluescape received an invitation to present at an AFWERX virtual event on Wednesday.
