PentagonThe U.S. Air Force’s research laboratory will demonstrate several of its technology projects at a Defense Department lab day in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.

AFRL said Tuesday more than 100 projects that involve advanced weapons and global disaster relief support are slated for that presentation before reporters and high school students at the Pentagon event.

Maj. Gen. Tom Masiello, AFRL commander, said the event aims to inform attendees on how the lab develops support services for warfighters and helps the Air Force keep its military edge.

Some of the technologies set for demonstration are the automatic ground collision avoidance system, battlefield air targeting man-aided knowledge, directed energy and electro-optics for space superiority and the Android tactical assault kit.

Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work will speak at the event, to be hosted by Frank Kendall, defense undersecretary for acquisition, technology and logistics.

The U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy and DoD Medical organizations will also present various technologies at the exhibit.
