UES Celebrates win of Materials Characterization Contract with AFRL

December 20, 2017

As the US AFRL’s Materials and Manufacturing Directorate (RX) celebrates its century of success, UES celebrates another milestone! We have been awarded a contract to work with the AFRL on Advanced Characterization of Materials (ACOM) at RX’s Materials Characterization Facility (MCF).

Structural and functional materials are the backbone of all Air Force systems. Whether for ground-, air- or space-based applications, materials research and characterization support current Warfighter capabilities and enable advancements to meet rapidly evolving mission requirements. Supporting materials characterization and advancing research and development in novel techniques is the mission of the ACOM program at MCF.

The MCF is currently equipped with state-of-the-art microscopy and analytical characterization instruments that are maintained, operated, and supported by UES staff. In addition to working closely with Air Force researchers in order to determine materials research and characterization requirements, UES will work to develop unique and innovative materials characterization techniques that will advance the state of the art for AFRL/RX.

A team of scientific and support personnel from UES will collaborate with AFRL in this effort and build strong relationships with regional and national research centers to support AFRL’s mission. Dr. Nina Joshi, CEO, believes that UES’ success is due in part to its unique strengths. “We are proud to be selected over some strong competition." She adds, “We’re honored to be a partner to AFRL RX in this effort and we are committed to this program’s success."
