Adrienne Ephrem, integration manager with the 711th Human Performance Wing, represents the third generation of female engineers in her family. It was her grandmother, Phyllis Bolds, who started this family dynasty of scientists and mathematicians, working as a physicist in the radar branch of the electronics laboratory here at Wright-Patterson from 1955-1957, and then later in 1957, transferring to their flight dynamics laboratory, working there until her retirement in 1987. Bolds' daughter (and Ephrem's aunt), Karen Beason, is also a a materials scientist, working as an environmental protection specialist in the 88th Civil Engineering Group.

Researchers turn to liquid metals for agile electronics
WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio –  Self-healing electronics, antennas that can change shape and function with the flick of a switch and clothing woven with conductive threads able to electrically connect devices may seem like science fiction fodder. But, for scientists at the Air Force Research Laboratory, these concepts are much closer to

Air Force Research Laboratory’s AgilePod is a multi-intelligence, open architecture, reconfigurable prototype designed for the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and Air Force Special Operations communities. The reconfigurable pod enables operators to customize sensor packages based on specific mission needs, enhancing the intelligence process. The pod capability will be tested on a medium altitude MQ-9 surrogate aircraft in May 2017. (Courtesy photo/released)
AgilePod ‘reconfiguring’ ISR mission
WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- The ability to adapt a mission at a moment’s notice is a key tenet of the Air Force drive for flexibility in air power. For warfighters in the intelligence community, a new, Lego-like pod prototype expects to make that flexibility even easier on the field. Air Force Research Laboratory’s AgilePod is a
