  • 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.
  • VCSAF tours AFRL’s 711th Human Performance Wing

    Gen. Allvin received a full day of briefings and demonstrations by the 711th HPW’s Airman Systems Directorate and U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine, including demonstrations of large-scale laboratory devices used to analyze and monitor human performance.
  • 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.
  • AFRL physician researcher named Aerospace Medical Association Fellow

    The Aerospace Medical Association recently honored AFRL physician researcher Dr. (Brig. Gen.) James McEachen with the title of Fellow for his career-long accomplishments and professional dedication to aerospace medicine leadership, operations, education, and research.
  • 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.
  • Air Force partners in medical logistics to support US

    The Air Force is working with civilian partners and sister services to ensure personal protective equipment and other pandemic-related supplies are delivered wherever they are needed, whether to military treatment facilities or civilian hospitals. In early April, the Air Force stood up its first master ordering facility based out of Port San Antonio, Texas, to streamline supply processes.
  • 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 neurotechnology partnership aims to accelerate learning

    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 learning by closed-loop modulation of cognitive states during skill acquisition. Essentially, the AFRL team seeks to develop a capability that will give Airmen the ability to rapidly acquire knowledge and skills on the fly through direct brain interfaces with the help of neurotechnologies.
