Jay Jira, technology transition lead, Air Force Research Laboratory Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, evaluates turbine engine rotating components for evidence of initiated damage that may limit the useful life of the component in fighter aircraft. "The technology options AFRL provides give our warfighters an advantage on the battlefields of today and tomorrow,” said AFRL commander Maj. Gen. Thomas Masiello. “Those options help ensure we are on the right side of an unfair fight against America's adversaries, and it's our mission to keep it that way.” (Air Force photo by Michele Eaton) Sustainment plan for aging fleet critical
The average age of an Air Force aircraft is more than 25 years, which makes the current fleet the oldest in Air Force history - and it must keep flying into the foreseeable future.An aging fleet in a pinched budget environment is making sustainment technology a critical priority as the Air Force works to maintain U.S. dominance of air, space and
