2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Materials and Manufacturing Directorate. As the directorate looks to its next 100 years, this panel will discuss how the Air Force’s Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) Program can be responsive to future warfighting game changers such as directed energy, hypersonics, and autonomy, as well as “third offset” technologies. This panel will discuss technology, emerging trends, public policy, and legislation required for Air Force ManTech to improve warfighting capability and to reduce acquisition and sustainment costs.
Moderator: John D. Russell, DSc, Technical Director, Manufacturing and Industrial Technologies Division, Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL/RXM)
