Abstract : This Air Force Systems Command (AFSC) Research Planning Guide provides a basis for the annual Air Force Plan for Defense Research Science (Program Element 61102F). The purpose of the Guide is to direct the attention of the scientific community to the technology interests of the Air Force, to provide a prospectus of research objectives to which the scientific community can respond, and to document the relevancy of fundamental investigations to the Air Force mission. The research objectives described here represent the combined counsel of technical directors and program managers in Air Force research and development laboratories. These objectives enunciate scientific opportunities which, when exploited, will provide fundamental knowledge required to develop alternatives in solving technological problems which mitigate the superiority of Air Force systems. The objectives are grouped into eight technical areas: life sciences, materials, geophysics, aerospace vehicles, propulsion and power, weaponry, electronics, and computational sciences. These areas relate directly to Air Force mission areas and involve such scientific disciplines as physics, chemistry, biology, psychology, mathematics, and engineering.
