ORLANDO | ORANGE COUNTY CONVENTION CENTER
APRIL 25 – 28 | EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM
APRIL 26 – 28 | EXHIBITS
The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is the primary scientific research and development center for the Department of the Air Force. AFRL plays an integral role in leading the discovery, development, and integration of affordable warfighting technologies for our air, space, and cyberspace forces. With a workforce of 11,000+ across nine technology areas and 40 other operations worldwide, AFRL provides a diverse portfolio of science and technology ranging from fundamental to advanced research and technology development.
Within AFRL, scientists and engineers collaborate to execute crosscutting R&D. External collaboration including partnerships with industry, academia and other agencies is also an integral part of AFRL’s business model. In continuing with this integrated, cooperative approach, AFRL will seamlessly support the S&T needs of two services: the Air Force and the Space Force. Today’s global threats require multi-disciplinary solutions, and AFRL is committed to supporting the warfighter in every key domain.
EXPLORE OUR AUVSI EXHIBITS
As one laboratory supporting two services, AFRL will showcase programs and technologies in several areas including weapons and unmanned aerial vehicles, plus avenues for sharing ideas or capabilities with the lab.
Golden Horde, a series of networked, collaborative, autonomous weapon demonstrations, is creating an integrated system of systems where weapons autonomously work together to increase survivability and lethality. The program team, which successfully demonstrated swarms of integrated weapons that share data and execute coordinated behaviors, is developing a multi-tier digital weapon ecosystem with a live, virtual and constructive testing and demonstration capability known as the Golden Horde Colosseum.
AEROSPACE (UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY)
AFRL will showcase its latest innovation within the Air Launched Off-Board Operations or ALOBO program, a versatile tube-launched UAV providing increased optics abilities in austere conditions. ALOBO focuses on developing small, unmanned aircraft systems that can be launched from larger host aircraft while in fight. These systems extend the mission reach and capabilities of host vehicles.
In addition to programs and technologies, AFRL will also highlight its Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics or STEM outreach challenge known as Sky Dreamer, which uses a heavy lift drone to engage students in real-world Air Force mission scenarios. This challenge enables students to develop skills and applications such as computer-aided design, prototype and manufacturing, payload and sensor integration and flight testing, all of which will help prepare them for future careers in STEM fields.

CONNECT WITH AFRL
AFRL will also highlight various avenues for connecting with the lab at its booth including AFWERX, SpaceWERX and Tech Connect website. AFWERX, part of AFRL and the innovative technology developers with Airmen and Guardian talent. Such teaming occurs across academia, industry, investment, interagency and international partners to expand technology, identify talent and transition dual-use capabilities.
AFWERX’s Agility Prime program will be on display with an electric powered vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) virtual reality simulator to illustrate how AFWERX is partnering with commercial industry to fast-track air mobility systems.
Innovators who would like to share ideas with AFRL, are encouraged to visit the Air Force and Space Force Tech Connect website, a portal where users can submit ideas and capabilities with AFRL subject matter experts for potential feedback, collaborations and opportunities. Individuals can also learn about science and technology challenges, grants and other opportunities by visiting the website.
