The Mathematics and Operations Research portfolio supports basic science in a broad range of mathematical domains aimed at developing innovative, fast, and reliable methods for creating and/or analyzing large and complex models relevant to US Air Force applications. Modern technologies have made data collection more ubiquitous in the Air Force than ever before; this includes everything from medical care databases to outputs of an individual radio frequency sensor. As the amount and complexity of data increases, new techniques are required to better extract meaningful information from underlying structure in data. Specifically, the portfolio advances this effort via three primary research foci: signal processing, machine learning, and uncertainty quantification. Collectively, these focus areas drive toward novel approaches for modeling and data analysis, along with theoretical performance guarantees. This portfolio also seeks to tie in with current research efforts of the Information Directorate and AFOSR. For further information about the goals, aims, and activities of this portfolio, please contact the EOARD Program Officer, Maj Jesse Peterson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
