Breaking Down the BAA | Research proposals are sought for the Sensory Information Systems program, managed by Dr. Patrick Bradshaw. This program coordinates multi-disciplinary experimental research with mathematical, neuromorphic, and computational modeling to develop the basic scientific foundation to understand and emulate sensory information systems. Emphasis is on (a) acoustic information analysis, especially in relation to human auditory perception, and (b) sensory and sensorimotor systems that enable 3D airborne navigation and control of natural flight, e.g., in insects or bats, especially in relation to capabilities of autonomous biological systems not yet emulated in engineered flight. Find the #BasicResearch   Objectives of this program at http://go.usa.gov/kU8e #AirForce

Congratulations Professor Michael Sangid!

Professor Sangid has received an AFOSR Young Investigator Research Program (YIP) Award for his proposed research “Identifying The Crack Driving Force Mechanism Through Bayesian Analysis”. This research will combine state-of-the-art crystal plasticity modeling and high energy x-ray diffraction/tomography to make inferences on the mechanism that drives a crack to propagate through polycrystalline Ti alloys. #BasicResearch

Twenty scientists and engineers funded by the Defense Department were part of a group honored by President Barak Obama at +The White House on April 14th. Four of the scientists are supported by AFOSR/AFRL: Dr. Jennifer A. Dionne, +Stanford University; Dr. Mohamed L. El-Naggar, +University of Southern California; Dr. Gregory D. Fuchs, +Cornell University; and Dr. Rodney D. Priestley, +Princeton University#scientists   #engineers   #defense  

Congratulations to all of the #PECASE  winners!

Researchers at the University of Washington used high-speed video cameras to capture the wing and body motion of fruit flies after they encountered a looming image of an approaching predator. When under attack the flies employ screaming-fast banked turns to evade attacks. Click the link below to read the full story about this AFOSR supported research. #BasicResearch

We discover, shape and champion basic science that profoundly impacts the future Air Force.
Introduction
Welcome to the official Google+ page of AFOSR. We discover, shape and champion basic science that profoundly impacts the future Air Force.
 
For sixty years, AFOSR has forged the foundations of science in every mission critical area for today’s Air Force, from integrated circuits, lasers, and stealth to anti-missile defense systems, hypersonics, and space travel. AFOSR personnel do not dream about what is possible—we accomplish what many believe is impossible. We focus on the science of the future today; enabling a future Air Force that will be far more technologically advanced than any peer.
