The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is fortunate to have one of its subject matter experts (SMEs) working hand-in-hand with South Korea as it looks to advance its cybersecurity capabilities. This SME acquired his expertise prior to his affiliation with AFRL. In recognition of his knowledge, South Korea’s cybersecurity endeavors spurred an invitation to S

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 Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) reports good results from using a “neuromorphic” chip made by IBM to identify military and civilian vehicles in radar-generated aerial imagery.
The success of modern computing can be largely attributed to abstractions. By abstracting away the intricate details of how lower level components work, users at higher levels of abstraction are able to focus their efforts on content creation instead. While abstractions can drastically reduce complexities, they can also hide important details resulting in
Information Assurance (IA) is the application of this directive in the cyber domain. IA activities include measures that protect and defend information and information systems by ensuring their availability, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and non-repudiation. IA is the practice of assuring information and managing risks related to the use,
The use of live field testing for new data links, protocols, waveforms, radios, and algorithms is the traditional best-practice. With that said, the cost, time, effort and complexity involved in large-scale field tests often makes these tests unaffordable to many levels of testers. A glaring example is the gap that exists between basic research algorithm
The Department of Defense currently depends upon static cyber defense systems. Adversaries can plan their attacks carefully over time by relying on the static nature of our networks, and launch their attacks at the times and places of their choosing. The DoD needs new tools and technologies to reverse the current asymmetry that favors our cyber adversaries,
AFRL’s Information Directorate is located in Rome NY. Rome Air Development Center (RADC), the predecessor organization to AFRL Rome Research Site, began operations at Griffiss on June 12, 1951. RADC was the Air Force’s research and development of ground electronics and intelligence systems. In 1990, RADC became Rome Laboratory as part of an Air Force Lab
A. Cross-domain Transfer The proper treatment of classified data has always been important throughout this nation’s history. Classification of data was present even in the early period of the American Revolution when the Continental Congress passed a resolution in September 1774 to keep its proceedings secret . It wasn’t until March 1940, before World War
Introduction and Council Mission At the Information Directorate, we have a unique group of individuals that serves to ensure that the newer military and civilian employees have a positive impact on the Air Force mission. Formerly known as the “New Employee Organization”, this group is now recognized across the entire Air Force Materiel Command as the pro
Two Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR)-funded in-house efforts have shaped the way that AFRL/RI has bridged fault tolerance and game theory: “Fault Tolerance for Fight-Through (FTFT)” and “STORM: Survivability Through Optimizing Resilient Mechanisms”. FTFT was the forerunner of STORM. This was also a logical ordering from a historical perspec
