Voting closes one minute after the last pitch of the annual competition where Airmen pitch innovative ideas to a panel of top Air Force leadership and industry experts during the Air Force Association's Air Warfare Symposium Feb. 26-28 in Orlando, Florida. 

The First Command's idea, created by Capt. David Coyle and 1st Lt. Adam Treece from the 56th Operational Support Squadron and Wylie Standage Beier, an electrical engineering PhD student at Arizona State University, is called ‘Making Waves’ and centers around the creation of a low-cost, mobile threat emitter system to be used in training for fifth-generation aircraft.

Results can be seen here:  A voting link will also be available on the Air Force public website as well
