  • AFWERX Agility Prime partners with Kitty Hawk in first medevac exercise with electric aircraft

    AFWERX Agility Prime and new partner Kitty Hawk reached a milestone in May with their first operational exercise.
  • AFRL opens research altitude chambers, becomes force in aerospace physiology

    When Airmen are flying at 50,000 feet, they have to be prepared for every situation. And every piece of equipment that goes up with them must be able to function under the pressures of flight as well.   At the Air Force Research Laboratory, ensuring pilots, air crews, and all flight equipment can withstand various pressures, is one of the missions in the lab’s 711th Human Performance Wing, where research and aerospace medicine converge to enhance the performance and readiness of operational Airmen.
  • To train medics to save lives, fuselage travels to WPAFB

    The fuselage of a Boeing 767 is being delivered from Wilmington Air Park in Wilmington, Ohio, to the 711th Human Performance Wing’s U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine around 2 p.m. on March 3.
  • AFRL partnership seeks to “engineer” improved human performance

    For athletes, achieving peak performance takes more than skill and practice. Other important but less obvious factors - including nutrition, sleep, mental state, resilience, and more - are critical in maximizing potential. The Air Force Research Laboratory has teamed with small business partners to understand this total picture of human resilience and performance.   Together with Engineering Sports Performance LLC and RippleWorx Inc., AFRL will explore and improve human performance capabilities to benefit military personnel as well as civilian first responders.
  • Air Force lab surpasses 130K COVID-19 tests in 6 months

    This number equates to about 17% of all samples of COVID-19 that have been tested across the Department of Defense. And as the demand fluctuated and continues, laboratory personnel remain agile.
  • AFRL develops algorithm, flexible device for hands-free ultrasound

    The Air Force Research Laboratory recognizes the need for remote physiological monitoring during en route medical care. As such, they have conceived a flexible ultrasound device to serve this requirement.
  • AFRL researcher awarded by Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers

    Air Force Research Laboratory scientist Dr. Steve Kim was recently honored with the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers Professional Achievement Award ​for his innovative research and persistent drive to tackle challenging and evolving subject matter.
  • Air Force updates medical courses with COVID-19 content, procedures

    Air Force medical instructors and trainers are improving curriculum and adapting procedures to account for COVID-19 operations. COVID-19 has shed new light on the methods of conducting medical training and education. The U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine, in the Air Force Research Laboratory’s 711th Human Performance Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, conducts mission-essential courses while also delivering a medical force able to accomplish every assigned mission.
  • AF Surgeon General talks about COVID, innovation, leadership
