Research Areas

AFOSR plans, coordinates, and executes the Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL) basic research program in response to technical guidance from AFRL and requirements of the Air Force; fosters, supports, and conducts research within Air Force, university, and industry laboratories; and ensures transition of research results to support U.S. Air Force needs.

The focus of AFOSR is on research areas that offer significant and comprehensive benefits to our national warfighting and peacekeeping capabilities.

These areas are organized and managed in five scientific departments:

Dynamical Systems and Control Division
Leads the discovery and development of the fundamental and integrated science that advances future air and space flight.

Quantum and Non-Equilibrium Processes Division
Leads the discovery and transition of foundational physical science to enable air, space, and cyber power.

Information, Decision and Complex Networks Division
Leads the discovery and development of advancement in space situational awareness, autonomy, and cyber for the U.S. Air Force.

Complex Materials and Devices Division
Leads the discovery and development of the fundamental and integrated science that provides novel options that increase operational flexibility and performance of systems and environments of relevance to the U.S. Air Force.

Energy, Power and Propulsion Division
Leads the discovery and development of innovative fundamental science addressing a broad spectrum of energy-related issues.
