Abstract : The Air Force Science and Technology Milestones herein often represent the combined effort of several scientists and engineers working as a team. The basic and applied research, plus the follow-on technology development described, are essential to the continued success of the Air Force mission. This book contains Technology Milestones selected from one or more of the following categories: Support to the Warfighter (Air, Space, and Cyberspace)- Technology that has potential for, or has achieved, application on a Department of Defense system that is in development or operation or that has provided quick-reaction response to problems or needs of field organizations. Sustainment (Support to the Warfighter-Air, Emerging Technologies, Technology Transfer, Awards and Recognition)- Technology that increases readiness and reduces life cycle costs of legacy systems, applicable to (1) base infrastructure, (2) maintenance, (3) logistics, (4) training, and (5) human performance. Demonstration Exercises- Examples of significant demonstration exercises, including flight tests, system prototype demonstrations, and joint force exercises. Emerging Technologies- Major innovative technological advancements that offer significant potential for existing and future Air Force systems. Technology Transfer- Technology that has transferred from the laboratory to the private sectors, to include industry, academia, and state and local governments. Awards and Recognition- Awards and recognition of AFRL contributions within the scientific community at large, concerning technology advancements in the areas of technology transition, technology transfer, or technical achievement.
