    in Military

    For almost 60 years, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) has expanded the horizon of scientific knowledge through its leadership and management of the Air Force’s basic research program. The resulting accomplishments have led to the creation of numerous revolutionary capabilities, which have been the result of a continuous search to identify and fund exceptional talent working on the frontiers of science. The many AFOSR-funded breakthroughs throughout its history have been the cornerstones in critical areas that directly support the Air Force mission; from lasers and stealth to space weather and self-healing materials. Dr. Brendan Godfrey, director of AFOSR, will discuss the organization’s plans for continued success and the development of the next generation of outstanding scientists and engineers throughout the world.The appearance of advertising on this Web site, does not constitute endorsement by the Department of Defense, of the products or services advertised on this site.
