Program DescriptionThe EOARD Directed Energy program provides international support to AFRL Technical Directorates, notably Directed Energy, in basic and developmental research on lasers and coherent sources, directed energy, high-powered microwaves and RF science, optics, beam control, optical materials, detectors, and photonics. Particular interest is on cutting-edge in pulsed power, solid state solutions for photonics, whether that is RF photonics, nano-photonics, higher powered or mid-IR fiber lasers, and novel laser device theory or concepts. Further information about the goals, aims, and activities of this portfolio can be obtained by emailing the Program Officer, Dr. Nate Lockwood, at email@example.com.

About EOARDEstablished in 1952, the mission of the European Office of Aerospace Research & Development (office symbol: AFRL/AFOSR/IOE) is to discover, shape, and champion fundamental research of profound scientific impact and Air Force relevance. Located in London, our area of engagement includes Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and former Soviet states. EOARD provides direct financial support (and support on behalf of other AF and DoD funding agencies) for innovative international science, primarily through research grants. In addition, we support technical exchanges and visiting scientists to foster collaborations between leading researchers and the Air Force research community.
