  • Mission planning team supports JADC2 through agile software development

    In an effort to facilitate Joint All-Domain Command and Control, a team at Hanscom recently demonstrated a new agile cloud-based aircraft mission planning application. JOMS Core Mission Planning, or JOMS CMP, is an aircraft transit planning software that leverages CloudOne to identify users and shape the mission planning environment for that individual planner.
  • AFMC designates $5 million for AFMC We Need efforts

    The Air Force Materiel Command released $5 million in funding for projects across the mission as it continues to drive towards the goals of the AFMC We Need.
  • AFRL opens research altitude chambers, becomes force in aerospace physiology

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AFRL) – When Airmen are flying at 50,000 feet, they have to be prepared for every situation. And every piece of equipment that goes up with them must be able to function under the pressures of flight as well. At the Air Force Research Laboratory, ensuring pilots, air crews, and all flight equipment can
  • Nano-Bio Materials Consortium introduces new AFRL-Industry Co-Development Program

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AFRL) – The Air Force Research Laboratory’s Nano-Bio Materials Consortium is currently in contract negotiation with hopes of starting projects by June that use a new process of industry and AFRL personnel in co-developing smart medical technology innovations.NBMC awarded contracts to 12 organizations from
  • Tyndall AFB offers first glimpse of IROC prototype

    The Air Force offered its first glimpse of a new virtual operations prototype during a live equipment demonstration at Tyndall AFB this week.
  • AFRL testing made Perseverance, the search for life on Mars possible

    On February 18, 2021, NASA’s rover Perseverance touched down on the surface of Mars to begin searching for evidence of past life. The success of this touchdown would not have been possible without the work of a team of researchers who operate unique erosion testing equipment in a windowless bunker at Wright-Patterson’s Air Force Research Lab. And this is not the only Dayton connection to this particular Mars mission.
  • AFRL researchers demonstrate record-breaking RF isolator performance in ultra-compact device

    As the USAF continues with the unrelenting pursuit of driving down the size, weight and power of radio frequency (RF) components, the inherent challenges in these types of technologies are compounded. The typical difficulties of making smaller mechanical and physical components, however, are dwarfed by the challenges posed by making the required onboard electronic equipment smaller, lighter, and less power-hungry.
  • Metrology and Additive Manufacturing Lab ensures quality

    Manufacturing quality parts for the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex sustainment mission at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, can be challenging when a part exists only in a drawing.
  • AFRL 'x-ray vision' tool to reduce costs, time for 3-D part qualification

    The Air Force research Laboratory, in partnership with the Materials Solutions Network at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) of Cornell University, has developed a tool that can look directly inside of and instantaneously inspect the structure of composite components while they are being manufactured. This new technology uses a combination of phase contrast imaging and micro-beam scanning to produce real-time X-ray scattering images of the component during and post production. The process is expected to save the Air Force millions of dollars in qualification and certification of composite parts used in advanced unmanned aerial vehicles and satellite systems.
  • Joint Simulation Environment brings Next-Gen Test and Evaluation to AFTC

    The $34.4 million project will provide a state-of-the-art modeling and simulation environment to conduct fifth-generation and next-generation developmental test, operational test, and high-end advanced training and tactics development for the warfighter. Construction begins March 2021 and is scheduled to be complete Aug. 2022.
