The contractor trains 100% of the USAF's Flight Surgeons in an Air Force Specialty Code awarding course entitled Aerospace Medicine Primary (AMP). The AMP course is composed of three increments: AMP 101, AMP 201, and AMP 202. AMP increments 101 and 202 utilize an AAL to introduce AMP students to military flight operations. The AMP curriculum is specifically designed to expose medical and flight surgeon students to the rigors of flying, mission planning, modern cockpit symbology, disorientation, instrument procedures, aerobatics, low-level navigation, and formation flight in a setting that closely mirrors USAF Undergraduate Flight Training (UFT). There are three objectives of the AAL program. The first is to provide the student flight surgeon insight to the human response to the flight environment. The second is to develop the student USAF flight surgeon into a valued combat crewmember regardless of the weapon system to which they are assigned. The final objective is to provide the equivalent of six to eight months of operational military flight surgeon experience to USAFSAM AMP graduates.  

Human Language Technologies (HLT)

Department of the Air Force, Air Force Materiel Command | Published December 4, 2015

The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), 711th Human Performance Wing (711 HPW), Human-Centered Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Division, Human Trust and Interaction Branch (711 HPW/RHXS), seeks innovative research to develop human language technologies (HLTs) that will provide the warfighter with enhanced capabilities to utilize and exploit foreign language information. Much of the information needed to effectively understand, anticipate, manage, and operate in the global environment is found in foreign language speech, text, videos, and images; however, there is a critical lack of linguists and automated tools to understand, translate, and to effectively exploit this information. This shortfall is especially common and problematic for lesser spoken languages that have high military interest but lack sufficient linguists and automated language processing capabilities. Even for languages where speech and other language processing tools do exist, overall accuracy and performance can still be insufficient, depending on the domain and application, to effectively support operations. The objective of this program is to conduct research and develop HLTs in the areas of automatic speech recognition (ASR), machine translation (MT), natural language processing (NLP), information extraction (IE), information retrieval (IR), text-to-speech synthesis (TTS), and other speech and language processing technologies. Major application areas of interest include multilingual multimedia information extraction and retrieval (MMIER) and speech-to-speech translation (S2ST). The HLT Program within 711 HPW/RHXS has developed an in-house prototype system for MMIER called "Haystack" and has also developed a prototype S2ST system. Research and technology developed under this effort will be integrated into these applications, the applications configured for individual customer requirements, and then ultimately transitioned for operational use. Research will be conducted at the Unclassified, Secret Collateral, and Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS/SCI) level. The anticipated dollar value for this acquisition is $10M over a 5 year period of performance. This is a pre-solicitation notice only. It is anticipated that a BAA providing more details into this program will be released in the January 2016 timeframe. The BAA will be available at www.FedBizOps.gov. An Industry Day will be held shortly after the BAA is posted. Direct any questions to the contracting points of contact identified in this announcement or the technical point of contract, Mr. Joseph Steuver, 711 HPW/RHXS, phone 937-255-8015, e-mail: Joseph.Steuver.1@us.af.mil. Persons planning to attend the Industry Day must have at least a Secret Clearance. Appropriate clearances and base access must be obtained in advance. Questions regarding clearances/base access may be directed to Ms. Michelle Grigsby, 937-255-8229, Michelle.Grigsby.1@us.af.mil. Please note that requirements may change and this is not a guarantee that a solicitation will follow.

Hypersonic weapons are anticipated to provide revolutionary warfighting capabilities. The Department of the Air Force is in the planning stage for a research program focused on the technical maturation for materials and process (M&P) and related materials behavior and life prediction in extreme environments expected in hypersonic flight. Technology options are sought to reduce the risks associated with acquisition decisions for a notional expendable hypersonic vehicle (EHV) in the 2020 timeframe. Two concepts are being considered. The first is a hypersonic cruise missile with an onboard airbreathing propulsion system to maintain hypersonic velocities. The second is a boost glide (BG) weapon with a higher initial velocity to maintain hypersonic gliding flight. Both weapon concepts will be launched from an aircraft and will be designed to achieve similar mission objectives. To support the near-term weapon system transition focus, specific M&P and behavior and life prediction technology options that have the highest payoff by solving critical problems or significantly lowering risk associated with the anticipated weapon system acquisition should be emphasized.
