SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Col. Jennifer Grant, 50th Space Wing commander, released the results of the inaugural Innovative Warfighters Advancing Readiness panel at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Nov. 29.

The panel approved three innovative ideas: a 50th SW radio frequency fundamental and advanced course, an idea to bolster suicide prevention efforts on base and creation of a Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System lab.

Four other ideas were referred for more information and research.

The panel is held biannually to give Airmen an opportunity to present innovative ideas directly to wing leadership.

The iWAR panel also selected the top three innovators for 2018, which rewarded innovators with an opportunity to attend the 2019 Air Warfare Symposium in Orlando, Florida, to observe the Air Force’s Spark Tank competition.

The top three innovators are:

• 50th Operations Support Squadron

1st Lt. Joel Boxberger and Staff Sgt. John Sutherland

• 50th Mission Support Group

1st Lt. Jonathan Sampson

• 1st Space Operations Squadron

1st Lt. Patrick Boyle

The next panel is tentatively scheduled for May 2019.
