Air Force Bioenvironmental Engineers bring advanced exposure surveillance to the front lines Air Force Bioenvironmental Engineers bring advanced exposure surveillance to the front lines
Modern battlefields have many sources of potentially harmful airborne substances, but that is not the only place that Airmen can be exposed to harmful environmental factors. Air Force bioenvironmental engineers are developing technology to track, catalogue, and provide useful data about environmental exposures that will help identify battlefield threats in real time and inform Airmen of the everyday exposures that affect their health.

AFMC commander speaks at AFA AFMC commander: Agility, innovation to fuel future of AF logistics
The future of Air Force logistics will find Airmen tapping into a secure digital network of archived additive manufacturing specifications, allowing for the 3D-printed creation of a weapons system component whenever and wherever needed. This agile manufacturing approach is just one way Air Force Materiel Command is working to advance Air Force logistics, said Gen. Ellen M. Pawlikowski, AFMC commander, at the 2017 Air Force Association’s Air, Space and Cyber Conference Sept. 18, 2017.
