  • 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
  • Air Force investigates using quantum materials in new navigation tool

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – Air Force Research Laboratory researchers Drs. Robert Bedford, Luke Bissell, Chandriker Dass and Michael Slocum are finding practical applications for the curious phenomena that occur in quantum materials. Until the late 1990s, the properties — or even the existence — of such materials seemed little more than
  • AFRL Aircraft Decontamination Team ramps up battle against COVID-19

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio - Health of air crews is paramount, and ensuring Air Force systems are safe to operate, including aircraft, is crucial.To support the global fight against COVID-19, the Air Force Research Laboratory quickly stood up an aircraft decontamination team pooling bioenvironmental, aircraft materials and medical
  • AFRL holds Biotech Days

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio - Biotechnology is a broad term that refers to the use of livings systems or mimicking biological processes to make useful materials, chemical, biosensors, and  presents opportunities for defense innovation in a number of domains, including specialty materials manufacturing, novel sensors, warfighter
  • Air Force scientists granted patent for new process that extends antibody and vaccine shelf life

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – Three Air Force researchers were recently granted a patent on a method for stabilizing biological materials such as vaccines, antibodies, anti-venoms and antibiotics without using refrigeration. Drs. Joseph M. Slocik, Rajesh R. Naik and Patrick B. Dennis of AFRL’s 711th Human Performance Wing and Materials
