The inspiration of this opportunity is the amplification of the AFOSR BAA, to provide an accelerated technology transition pathway using twitter, APAN, and more traditional communication methods for promising defense related science under development by university teams (e.g. undergraduate, graduate, doctorate, post-doctorate, faculty/staff). Encouragement is aimed at teams with early stage science ideas related to Agile Science of Test and Evaluation. Click here to learn more.

The 2019 AFOSR Agile Science of Test and Evaluation Program Review will be held September 17-19, 2019 in the Research A Room at the BRICC located on 4100 North Fairfax Drive, Suite 450, Arlington, VA 22203. Click here for event details and registration.
The Agile Science of Test and Evaluation (T&E) program supports basic research inventing and innovating revolutionary capabilities responsive to the Air Force T&E community. Crossing scientific frontiers necessitates enhancing and pioneering test and measurement capabilities. The program sponsors basic research in areas enabling metrology and facilitating correct and comprehensive interpretation of test information. Agile science of test and evaluation leads to improving the ability to analyze FA9550-19-S 0003 Page 16 of 86 and model operational environments, pursue science discoveries, and accelerate research & acquisition. The AFOSR T&E program encompasses six broadly-defined, overlapping thrust areas: Aeroelasticity and Aerodynamics, Enabling Materials and Processes, Hypersonics, Information Management and Fusion, Sensors and Electromagnetics and Science of Integrated Risk Assessment. The Program is closely aligned with other AFOSR science areas advancing experimental methodologies and merging scientific disciplines.
Basic Research Objectives: The AFOSR T&E program is closely engaged with technical experts at the Air Force Test Center (AFTC) organizations including Arnold, Edwards, Eglin and Holloman Air Force Bases, who help guide the program on basic research objectives. Basic research in areas that advance the science of testing is broadly defined and spans mathematics as well as most disciplines in engineering and the physical sciences. Areas include, but are not limited to:
The portfolio also seeks basic research in other T&E areas, not listed above, that may advance the science of test and contributes to the development of knowledge, skills, and abilities for the AF T&E community.
You are highly encouraged to contact our Program Officer prior to developing full proposals to briefly discuss program relevance. You should be prepared to explain why your proposed effort should be considered basic research, how it is unique to Test Science, and demonstrate an awareness of the Air Force T&E process.
Collaborative efforts with the Air Force Test Center and Air Force Research Laboratory are encouraged, but not required.
