Chicago, IL - August 21, 2019 - The U.S. Air Force has awarded Jiobit, an advanced location tracking platform, a substantial contract to proceed into Phase II of its Small Business Innovation & Research (SBIR) Program. Established in 1982, the SBIR is a highly competitive program that supports research and development by small businesses with strong potential for military and commercial use.

“The Phase II Award serves as a testament to Jiobit’s unique hardware and system-level attributes, all built around military-grade data security," said Roger Ady, CTO and Co-Founder of Jiobit. “We look forward to delivering solutions that address the needs of our U.S. Air Force customers while at the same time providing valuable new capabilities to our commercial customers.”

Jiobit completed Phase I of the SBIR program in June, successfully demonstrating that its technology platform can meet specific U.S. Air Force mission needs. With the Phase II Award, Jiobit will now develop and test the new solutions with its U.S. Air Force partners. 

“In Phase II, companies must be able to clearly demonstrate their ability to deliver into production solutions that not only meet U.S. Air Force requirements but can be sustained for the long-term through their commercial appeal,” said Ady. “Consistent with the goals of the program, the features we develop will all be dual use -- for U.S. Air Force customers and Jiobit consumers alike.”
