At today’s open house, AFOSR hosts the inaugural event of the Air Force Research Laboratory Heritage celebration of 100 Years of Science and Technology— a celebration of both the past and the future of Air Force Science and Technology. Featured speakers include Dr. Morley Stone, Chief Technology Office of the Air Force Research Laboratory and Dr. Greg Zacharias, Chief Scientist of the United States Air Force. This year is also a celebration of the +United States Air Force 70th anniversary, the Air Force Materiel Command 25th anniversary, and the Air Force Research Laboratory 20th anniversary.

Throughout the year, AFRL Technical Directorates and the 711th Human Performance Wing will host open house events to celebrate AFRL heritage. Here is a tentative schedule:

Materials and Manufacturing Directorate (RX): April
AFRL Munitions Directorate (RW): May
Aerospace Systems Directorate (RQ): June
Information Directorate (RI): July
711th Human Performance Wing: August
Sensors Directorate (RY): September
Directed Energy and Space Vehicles Directorates (RD/RV): November
Headquarters AFRL: December
