Augmented Reality

i5 is in the process of obtaining augmented reality technology to assist cadets in the visualization of the space domain during wargaming exercise.

Space Battleship

i5 Space Wargamers have created a version of battleship that includes space capabilities such as remote sensing in order to illustrate joint force capabilities.

Partnerships

 

 

The wargaming team is working with both USSF and industry partners to explore the relationship between the space domain and the joint force through wargaming.

Mentorship

Cadets will soon have the opportunity to participate in the i5  Mentorship Program. This program matches cadets with Space Force guardians from USAFA classes 2020 and 2021. They will be paired according to job interest, the Space Force jobs available to cadets are Intelligence, Cyber, Engineering, Acquisition, and Ops. The cadets can ask the guardians about their bases, jobs, daily life, etc.

Education

One of the primary missions of i5 is to educate cadets on the space domain. While the Air Force Academy has multiple space related majors, the cadets not in those majors need a way to access educational material on space. That's where i5 can help. The i5 education team created a schedule of topics to cover, and will organize guest speakers, panels and educational material for each topic.
