The Air Force Small Business Industry Days (SBID) provide benefit by creating partnerships and increasing small business participation. The Air Force SBIDs focus on small business capabilities and opportunities, matching stakeholders from the Air Force Test Center (AFTC) PEO, large business, and small business communities. This event emphasizes small business capabilities that provide new concepts, highlight existing small business products, promote collaboration, and integrate small businesses’ services, products, and technologies into AFTC's normal way of doing business.

AFTC is headquartered at Edwards AFB, CA, with work occurring at three primary locations: the 412th Test Wing at Edwards AFB, CA, the Arnold Engineering and Development Complex (AEDC) at Arnold AFB, TN, and the 96th Test Wing at Eglin AFB, FL. The 412th TW performs test and evaluation on aircrafts and systems, and influences weapon systems design to make sure they meet operational warfighting, combat support, or training requirements. AEDC performs ground tests, engineering analysis, and technical evaluations for all the U.S. armed forces, other government agencies and commercial aerospace industry on aircraft, missiles, and space systems. The 96th TW plans, directs, and documents test and evaluation of armament, navigation, guidance systems, and command and control systems.

The 2017 AFTC SBID takes place November 7-9, 2017, in Las Vegas, NV, with a combination of informational briefings and speakers, as well as one-on-ones between small businesses and government POCs. This event focuses on increasing the AFTC’s small business supply chain, as well as matching program office technology based needs to SBIR/STTR/RIF developed technologies that accelerate transition onto platforms.
