Road Trip: The Air Force Research Lab, Ohio

The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is a scientific research organization operated by the United States Air Force Materiel Command dedicated to leading the discovery, development, and integration of affordable aerospace warfighting technologies; planning and executing the Air Force science and technology program; and provide warfighting capabilities to United States air, space, and cyberspace forces.

The Laboratory was formed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio on October 31, 1997 as a consolidation of four Air Force laboratory facilities (Wright, Phillips, Rome, and Armstrong) and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research under a unified command.

The Laboratory is composed of 8 technical directorates, 1 wing, and the Office of Scientific Research. Each technical directorate emphasizes a particular area of research within the AFRL mission which it specializes in performing experiments in conjunction with universities and contractors.

AFRL's mission is leading the discovery, development and integration of affordable warfighting technologies for America's aerospace forces. It is a full-spectrum laboratory, responsible for planning and executing the Air Force' science and technology program.

AFRL leads a worldwide government, industry and academia partnership in the discovery, development and delivery of a wide range of revolutionary technology. The laboratory provides leading-edge warfighting capabilities keeping our air, space and cyberspace forces the world's best. 

The lab employs approximately 5,800 government people, including about 1,400 military and 4,400 civilian personnel. It is responsible for the Air Force's science and technology budget of nearly $2 billion including: basic research, applied research, advanced technology development and an additional $1.7 billion from AFRL customers.

Since the Laboratory's formation in 1997, it has conducted numerous experiments and technical demonstrators in conjunction with NASA, Department of Energy National Laboratories, DARPA, and other research organizations within the Department of Defense. Notable projects include the X-37, X-40, X-53, HTV-3X, YAL-1A, Advanced Tactical Laser, and the Tactical Satellite Program.

The laboratory and its predecessors have overseen more than 80 years of critical research efforts for the Air Force and DOD. Its technology breakthroughs can be found in all of today's modern aircraft and weapons systems, including the F-117 stealth fighter, B-2 bomber, C-17 airlifter and the F-22 fighter. It has contributed to significant advancements in modern communications, electronics, manufacturing, and medical research and products.

Aloha, Brother! There will be no rest from this time henceforth, I fear. Soon even the most uninformed among us will have the scales drop from their eyes. What they will then behold will not be for the faint of heart.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Good evening, Taz...((HUGS))...my goodness! You need your own vet on staff.

Balding does not sound good. Hope they can medicate him and stop the hair loss. He will need a sweater.

And then the vet again....laceration fixed ok?

The Soldier

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is forever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam;
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

Six of our British Allies killed in a single incident - vehicle tripped an IED. As usual, the Islamists taking us back to the Seventh Century. All I can say is that I am appalled at the depths to which they descend. I thought when I came back from 'Nam that I had seen a lot of atrocities - by the other side, of course. Little did I know what was waiting for us in the 21st Century. God save us from these barbarians! God save our children from what is to come! God give our troops the grace, strength and skill to vanquish this evil foe!

Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

Amen, Conor!

It’s gotten pretty depressing. I never thought I’d say this
but I’m ready to bring our guys home. They aren’t wanted, and
our government doesn’t back them up any more. They have been
hung out to dry by our miserable excuse for a president.

God help them....and protect them.....

Bring them home or for God's sake, LET THEM WIN!!! We've been in this place before and the valiant efforts of our troops in a just and honorable cause were undone by weak-willed politicians and a media that is nothing more than a claque of Commie Fifth Columnists!

My hat is off to our troops of today - of all branches. Their performance under hobbling ROE's in the face of a brutal, barbaric and remorseless enemy is nothing short of magnificent. Get the bureaucrats and politicians out of their way and let them do their job!

Just some maundering from an old broken down FMF corpsman. To all my Brothers and Sisters now serving, in any branch, Semper Fi! We love you all! And we're damn' proud of the job you've done! As we used to say in 3/5, GET SOME!!!

Kitty is on meds.

Robert is (apparently) out of surgery and posting on Facebook (that's how I found out he's out of surgery). He's requesting someone bring him a cake-n-shake milkshake (whatever that is). His post was made 12 minutes ago. He appears to have made it out of surgery just fine.

Thanks for the prayers.

Hi Kathy!
Thanks for the post on Wright Patt! I worked there (area A) for the 4950th Test Wing in the early 80’s. The wing was disbanded in the 90’s and the remnants sent to Edwards AFB. When I was there we had several C-141’s, C-135’s and C-130’s that were used to test prototype hardware. The only drawback to working there was the weather. Cold and wet in the winter, hot and humid in the summer.

The most important advice I was ever given from a nurse to a new grad, Always stand to the side and never in front of the basin.
