In September 2017, Secretary of the U.S. Air Force Heather Wilson launched an initiative to update the Air Force's science and technology strategy. Over the course of a year, the Air Force will listen and learn from the scientific community, higher education and business professionals through a series of conversations and outreach events.
WE ARE THE AIR FORCE
and we are building tomorrow’s technology
THE SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY 2030 INITIATIVE
INVENT THE FUTURE TODAY
Your ideas will shape the Air Force of tomorrow.
In 1944, Theodore von Karman envisioned a new Air Force through his study, Toward New Horizons. The technologies identified more than 70 years ago are the reality that keeps America safe today. Submit your ideas to help us invent the future for 2030 and beyond.
We can't afford to slow down. As our adversaries close the technology gap, we need to push the boundaries of what's possible and invent the future. In order to defend America, we need your help to innovate smarter and faster. Our warfighters depend on us to keep the fight unfair and we will deliver.
We’re ready to listen to your cutting-edge science and technology ideas for basic and applied research, as well as ideas on best practices to support innovative research organizations. Join us at one of these locations and stay tuned for more information on virtual engagements. #AF2030
