WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio. Officials at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and the Coast Guard Research and Development Center signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), which focuses in unmanned systems, modeling and simulation, along with other research focus ares that will be broad enough to include areas of mutual interest for the two organizations.

“We get the opportunity to collaborate with a world-class, military lab that shares a lot of common interest areas with us and it helps both of our services explore and adopt technology, hopefully, faster,” says U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Greg Rothrock, USCG RDC commanding officer.

“The Coast Guard has access to resources that we don’t have and, through the collaboration, we will be able to access those resources – like different test platforms,” says Tammy Collins, AFRL Partnering Division alliance manager.
