Joint Base San Antonio AllSpark

The leaders of innovation cells at Joint Base San Antonio have opened the lines of communication in order to share ideas that can benefit units and organizations throughout the installation.

Since July 2021, innovation cells led by members of various JBSA wings, major commands, and units have had informal quarterly meetings to discuss how they can collaborate, sharing ideas and solutions, to help JBSA as a whole. Now, through official innovation, or spark, cells, Airman and Guardians at JBSA can connect, collaborate, and tap into the growing body of knowledge around innovation in the Air Force and Space Force. Currently, there are over a dozen spark cells at JBSA.
