  • AFRL academic research partnership to investigate operational stressors on Airmen

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – The Air Force Research Laboratory is partnering with Wright State University to better understand stressors that affect pilots and the impacts they have on the mission and well-being of Airmen.The two research partners recently signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement to advance the development
  • 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 neurotechnology partnership aims to accelerate learning

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – It may sound like something straight out of a sci-fi movie, but an Air Force Research Laboratory team is turning science fiction into reality to help warfighters unlock the powers of the brain.The Individualized Neural Learning System, or iNeuraLS, is a new augmented learning platform that will enable rapid
  • Healthy volunteers needed for AFRL COVID-19 testing solutions research

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – From July to September 2020, Air Force Research Laboratory 711th Human Performance Wing researchers will launch sample collection for a new research study evaluating emerging testing methodologies for detecting past and present COVID-19 infections. Researchers will collect blood and saliva samples from up to
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
