  • Air Force research team awarded patent for new tunable radio frequency filter

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio – Air Force Research Laboratory scientists recently patented a new tunable radio frequency (RF) filter design. The new design is for a smaller, lighter, less expensive device that requires much less power than current technology.As the Air Force moves to smaller, more “agile” flying vehicles such as hand-launched drones,
  • Air Force and Nano-Bio Materials Consortium announce RFP, pilot program for AFRL-Industry Partnerships

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio – The Air Force Research Laboratory, along with the governing council of the Nano-Bio Materials Consortium (NBMC), has approved a pilot program to enable AFRL researchers to partner with industry collaborators to address key capability and technology gaps in support of human performance monitoring and aeromedical
  • Hybrid nanomaterials hold promise for improved ceramic composites

    Researchers at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base are seeking to patent a novel process for manufacturing a type of material called preceramic polymer-grafted nanoparticles, or “hairy nanoparticles” (HNP).
  • AFRL researcher awarded by Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – An Air Force Research Laboratory scientist was recently honored with the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers Professional Achievement Award ​for his innovative research and persistent drive to tackle challenging and evolving subject matter.Dr. Steve Kim is a scientist in the Performance Optimization
  • Air Force and industry consortium announce workshop on telemedicine and medical electronics innovation

    In August 2020, the Air Force Research Laboratory, along with SEMI Nano-Bio Materials Consortium (NBMC), a global association of electronics design and manufacturing companies, will hold an open, virtual workshop series. Its purpose is to explore the continuing need for actionable, intelligent and real-time data to improve outcomes for remote sensing, monitoring and treatment. The annual workshop, which begins August 5, 2020, and continues in two-hour sessions on each successive Wednesday, will be the fourth such event held by the consortium. However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this is the first time it will be a virtual event.
  • Air Force collaboration leads to new method of triggering shape change

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – The saying “form follows function” speaks to the obvious relationship between an object’s shape and its purpose: how it will be used. If an object can change its shape, it can be used for a broader range of purposes. Researchers at the Air Force Research Laboratory, in collaboration with academic colleagues,
  • New Air Force Science & Technology Strategy puts focus on speed

    Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson unveiled a new and ambitious Science and Technology Strategy designed to better identify, develop and deploy breakthrough technologies, April 17.
  • S&T 18 Wargame tests Air Force science, technology concepts for 2038

    Capability concepts to ensure the Air Force’s ability to fly, fight and win in the year 2038 were put to the test during the Air Force Materiel Command’s Science and Technology Wargame 2018, Nov. 5 to 9. The games tested the military utility of more than 30 next-generation warfighting capabilities against real-world operational scenarios, with the goal of identifying the concepts that work the best and to provide feedback to improve others with the potential for success.
