Military scientists study Ionosphere
At a facility in a remote part of south-central Alaska, the largest radio transmitter on Earth sends high-frequency signals into the ionosphere to help scientists better understand the influence of charged particles on radio communications and satellite surveillance systems. Surprisingly, it also is able to create a mini-ionosphere. "The High

With thousands of specimens arriving daily for processing, USAFSAM’s clinical and research labs are taking steps now to ensure their mission can continue uninterrupted during the transition to Wright Patterson. (Air Force Photo) USAFSAM Rising to Challenges of Upcoming BRAC Move
As anyone who's ever relocated knows, moving involves a lot of planning and hard work! With its BRAC-initiated move to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio beginning later this year, the U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine at Brooks City-Base continues to address a range of challenges as it readies for this shift. Some have been
