ELEVATE (ROTC & University Program)
Updated: Mar 19
INTERNSHIPS, DISSERTATIONS, AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
Enhancing Leaders Electronically & Virtually with Adaptive Technologies & Education
If we wait until our Future Military Leaders are in a position of Leadership before being exposed to Emerging Technologies;
we are 4 - 6 YEARS behind the learning curve required to effectively and efficiently use the Modernization tools/ assets around them, in their units, and in mission planning.

ELEVATE is a Superior Futures Technologies "SFTech" Program to support modernization initiatives of Army Futures Command and other Elite Department of Defense entities regarding "assets" for Hyper-Enabled Operators. We will disciss how they use Project Convergence accomplishments to create Overmatch for Joint All-Domain Command and Control JADC2.

Over 45 Universities, 100+ ROTC Units, and numerous Emerging Technology Companies are joining our mission at ELEVATE.
The ELEVATE Program is designed to expedite the understanding of Emerging Technologies for ROTC Cadets today and what's around the corner. We Force Multiply these efforts with STEM Departments at the Universities/ Institutions, combined with critical Industry Leaders/ Innovators in order to expedite the learning curve necessary to implement modernization efforts at a faster rate for missions at Army Futures Command, SOCOM, Naval Special Warfare Center, Space Force, and other elite DoD entities by solving mission critical capability gaps. Our converging efforts from industry and institutions are creating game-changing solutions, training capabilities breakthroughs, and End-User Dominance for the Department of Defense's modernization efforts through 2050+.
*The Goal of ELEVATE is to expedite the DoD's Modernization Timelines for Development, Integration, and Implementation of Emerging Technologies for Overmatch in Joint All-Domain Operations and Mosaic Warfare scenarios.
DoD's representation of Joint All-Domain Operations:
Army Futures Command initiatives are organized into Cross Functional Teams:
Long-range precision fires (LRP)
Next generation combat vehicle (NGCV)
Future vertical lift (FVL)
Network command, control, communication, and intelligence
Assured positioning, navigation, and timing (A-PNT)
Air and missile defense (AMD)
Soldier lethality (SL)
Synthetic training environment (STE)
*Several others are emerging*

Although each branch will have some specialized capabilities, the Joint Chiefs have developed and are enhancing a Superior Military Force that fights as one dominant and precise unit with Undeniable, Relentless, and Reliable Overmatch that is instantly deployable, overwhelmingly prepared, and adequately scalable.
Superior Futures Technologies (SFTech) supports these critical missions in various ways, The ELEVATE program is just one of our supporting mechanisms for Next Generation Dominance of Hyper-Enabled Operators. SFTech is ultimately decreasing the OODA Loop's timeline (Observe, Orient, Decide and Act) making HEO's far more Lethal with greater Survivability.
Future Military Leaders helping to solve Future (& Current) Military Problems.
1. ELEVATE creates opportunities for Collaborative Testing of cutting-edge technologies from different providers of Drones, Robotics (land, air and sea), Autonomous Vehicles, Sensors, K9 vests, and other Emerging Technologies to gather critical information for the industry developers and valuable experience for DoD operators.
This program can directly accelerate innovation development, decrease various DoD program costs, and deliver world-class opportunities to cadets. In addition, our team at SFTech can "mirror" any desired technologies/capabilities in a VR/AR (Mixed Reality) environment with some of the best visual effects on the planet.
These capabilities can be leveraged by the One World Terrain Synthetic Training Environment Cross Functional Team and the IVAS program for the Soldier Lethality CFT.
2. ELEVATE provides Cadets with opportunities to expedite the merging process with the Modernization Efforts of the DoD and the technologies supporting / enhancing those efforts. (We can reduce years off of the current timelines.)
By Introducing the capabilities now, Cadets will start the "paradigm shift" required for understanding the rapidly approaching "future battlefield". In addition, Cadets learn how to use technology assets to their advantage, and the Force Multiplying Attributes these technologies can provide for their Unit / Misison. Furthermore, Cadets will learn how these distributed asset capabilities will substantially increase Overmatch on the battlefield, with the bonus abilites to adapt and scale relentlessly.
The Cadet's expedited understanding of the Modernization Efforts and capabilities of Emerging Technologies will make the adoption of more cutting-edge technologies significantly easier for the DoD's 2028, 2035 & 2050 initiatives.
3. ELEVATE creates collaboration with key programs within the University that will be essential for Subject Matter Experts to add value to DoD directives. This will also supply various opportunities for Internships, Dissertations, and STEM Careers for Cadets and Students of other departments!
(Engineering, Mathematics, Robotics, Medical, Computer Engineering, Game Development, Textiles, Additive Manufacturering, 3D Printing etc.)
We will have mentoring and educational segments/ materials provided by Subject Matter Experts in various fields: Advance Warfare, Counter Intelligence, Emergency/ Tactical Medical Care, Emerging Technologies, Strategists, Human Performance and more!
SFTech will host Entrepreneur Pitch Competitions for solving mission critical capability gaps, enhancing unmanned solutions, and other emerging technologies breakthroughs. These pitch competitions with be massive opportunities for ALL entrepreneurs involved.
Superior Futures Technologies (SFTech) will be the "Tip of the Spear" for leading the ELEVATE Program in support of the DoD mission around Joint All-Domain Operations Initiatives across the nation.

We proudly support the Modernization Initiatives set forth by the Joint Chiefs for our DoD's National Defense Strategy in 2022, 2028, 2035, and 2050.
These Initiatives are very important to maintain Overmatch, enhance Distributed Operations (Mosaic Warfare/ Joint All-Domain Operations), and revolutionize Soldier Lethality/ Survivability.
