  • Air Force research team awarded patent for new tunable radio frequency filter

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio – Air Force Research Laboratory scientists recently patented a new tunable radio frequency (RF) filter design. The new design is for a smaller, lighter, less expensive device that requires much less power than current technology. As the Air Force moves to smaller, more “agile” flying vehicles such as hand-launched drones,
  • Air Force and Nano-Bio Materials Consortium announce RFP and pilot program for AFRL-Industry Partnerships

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio – The Air Force Research Laboratory, along with the governing council of the Nano-Bio Materials Consortium (NBMC), has approved a pilot program to enable AFRL researchers to partner with industry collaborators to address key capability and technology gaps in support of human performance monitoring and aeromedical
  • How the Air Force is making it easier for aircraft maintainers to see at night

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – We all know that working in the dark with insufficient lighting makes the task that much more cumbersome. Good quality lighting is critical for maintainers when repairing an aircraft on the flightline.The U.S. Air Force has an inventory of approximately 5,500 four-wheel diesel light carts that provide

  • Air Force and industry consortium announce workshop on telemedicine and medical electronics innovation

    In August 2020, the Air Force Research Laboratory, along with SEMI Nano-Bio Materials Consortium (NBMC), a global association of electronics design and manufacturing companies, will hold an open, virtual workshop series. Its purpose is to explore the continuing need for actionable, intelligent and real-time data to improve outcomes for remote sensing, monitoring and treatment. The annual workshop, which begins August 5, 2020, and continues in two-hour sessions on each successive Wednesday, will be the fourth such event held by the consortium. However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this is the first time it will be a virtual event.
