Three College of Engineering professors have secured a $600,000, three-year grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) titled, “Bayesian Computational Sensor Networks for Aircraft Structural Health Monitoring.” The grant will be co-investigated by ECE’s Prof. Mathews, ME’s Prof. Adams, and SoC’s Prof. Henderson.

Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR)

The Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), located in Arlington, Virginia, continues to expand the horizon of scientific knowledge through its leadership and management of the Air Force’s basic research program. As a vital component of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), AFOSR’s mission is to discover, shape, and champion basic science that profoundly impacts the future Air Force.

The focus of AFOSR is on research areas that offer significant and comprehensive benefits to our national warfighting and peacekeeping capabilities. These areas are organized and managed in three scientific directorates: Aerospace, Chemical and Material Sciences; Mathematics, Information and Life Sciences; and Physics and Electronics.
