  • AFRL Materials and Manufacturing Directorate celebrates annual awards recipients

    The Air Force Research Laboratory’s Materials and Manufacturing Directorate recently held their 68th Annual Awards Ceremony to honor its top achievers. Masters of ceremony were Dr. Jonathan Spowart from the Materials Integrity Branch and Mr. Keith Slinker from the Composite Branch.
  • 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
  • Hybrid nanomaterials hold promise for improved ceramic composites

    Researchers at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base are seeking to patent a novel process for manufacturing a type of material called preceramic polymer-grafted nanoparticles, or “hairy nanoparticles” (HNP).
  • AFRL and Compass Technology Group collaborate on specialty material techniques

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – The Air Force Research Laboratory and Compass Technology Group signed a cooperative agreement for two projects that have direct impact on Air Force programs in advanced specialty materials.These projects provide much-needed diagnostic capability to be used in manufacturing and/or field measurements and
  • 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.
  • Air Force collaboration leads to new method of triggering shape change

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – The saying “form follows function” speaks to the obvious relationship between an object’s shape and its purpose, that is, how it will be used. It seems reasonable, then, if an object can change its shape, it can be used for a broader range of purposes. Researchers at the Air Force Research Laboratory, in
  • Department of Defense and NextFlex sign new cooperative agreement

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – The Air Force Research Laboratory and NextFlex recently settled on a seven-year funding agreement worth up to $154 million that includes funding from the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s Manufacturing Technology program.The agreement focuses on defense manufacturing requirements to sustain NextFlex’s
  • Air Force scientists develop means for detecting early stages of lung problems caused by COVID-19

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- Air Force Research Laboratory scientists are working with University of Michigan and Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) researchers to build and test a revolutionary chemical sensing device that can detect acute respiratory disease syndrome (ARDS) associated with COVID-19 deaths.Under
  • AFRL pushes boundaries in metals printing with new research

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – Advancing the state of the art in metals additive manufacturing pushes the boundaries of possibility for aerospace and defense applications.Metal additive manufacturing allows the manufacturing of parts with complex geometries that are otherwise un-manufacturable, producing unique, performance-enhancing
