Pentagon Channel Documentary Focuses on Futuristic Military Technology
On a military installation near Dayton, Ohio, not far from where Orville and Wilbur Wright designed a powered aircraft that would be the first in history to successfully fly, scientists are working around the clock to develop amazing future technology for tomorrow's war fighters.
Breakthrough work of the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is the focus of a new edition of Pentagon Channel's monthly documentary, "Recon."
"Inventing for the Future" debuts May 11 at noon Eastern Time and will be made available via podcast and video on demand.
"Today, thousands of American men and women are in the midst of a war zone," said Recon host Air Force Master Sgt. Daniela Marchus. "They're better equipped and trained than ever before, but there is always room for improvement."
Those improvements are under way at AFRL thanks to a team using everything from chemistry to aerodynamics to nanotechnology to better equip servicemembers.
