Scientific Advisory Board begins 2015 studies

  • Published
The U.S. Air Force Scientific Advisory Board 2015 season officially kicked off at an event here in September that brought together new and returning members to discuss the Secretary of the Air Force’s approved studies.

This year’s SAB is made up of 54 experts among the nation’s top civilian scientists and engineers on matters of science and technology relating to the Air Force mission. The group was tasked by the Secretary of the Air Force and Chief of Staff of the Air Force to conduct studies on the cyber vulnerabilities of embedded systems in air and space systems; enhanced utility of unmanned air vehicles in contested and denied environments; and Utility of Quantum Systems for the Air Force.

The studies will be completed by the end of June 2015 and then be briefed to the Secretary of the Air Force, Chief of Staff of the Air Force, and other Air Force senior leadership. The information and recommendations of the SAB will then be used to shape and guide Air Force policy.
