An Open and Secure Approach to Innovative Federal Research: Perspective from AFRL

Friday, 16 December 2022 | 11 AM EST

“Technological Superiority” is an area where the United States has had the clear advantage since the end of the Cold War. The US’ position as a technology front runner is now being challenged. The Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) is on the front line of that fight armed with a workforce of almost 12,000 people and an investment portfolio of $2 billion dollars - all intended to develop the science and technology (S&T) capabilities and solutions that will power the Air Force and Space Force into the future.

In pursuit of that goal, AFRL actively engages with third-party scientists, academia, public and private sector experts, and other government agencies to collaborate and innovate.  Core to this innovation is creating an easy way for research teams to share information across disparate domains without sacrificing security or compliance with established regulations.

This conversation with Dr. Dan Berrigan of AFRL will explore his experience in transitioning AFRL research teams to cloud-based collaboration and productivity tools.  Dan will draw from his real-world efforts to shed insight on working within a mission driven organization while simultaneously collaborating across government, industry, and academia on crucial national security S&T initiatives.
