This Impact Report covers Fiscal Year 2020 and the first two quarters of Fiscal Year 2021 for the Academic Partnership and Engagement Experiment ( APEX ) which was codified in the Partnership Intermediary Agreement ( PIA ) FB8650-19-3-9341 between Wright State Applied Research Corporation (now Parallax) and the United States Air Force ( USAF ).

Aligned with overarching national security and science and technology ( S&T ) imperatives, this report frames the strategies that APEX has and will continue to employ to deliver, in an exceptional manner, the PIA ’s Statement of Work (SOW) tasks, objectives, activities, and experiments.

In so doing, APEX ’s results-driven outcomes continue to elevate the critical S&T work needed to meet AF 2030 and National Defense Strategy mandates and how they will be achieved, performed, and sustained.

The accomplishments contained in this document are intended to illuminate and implement a wide array of interrelated initiatives that address current challenges as well as a clear future-focused orientation.
