Air Force Research Laboratory – 711th Human Performance Wing
The Air Force Research Laboratory 711th Human Performance Wing’s mission is to advance human performance in air, space, and cyberspace through research, education, and consultation. The Wing supports the most critical Air Force resource – the operational military forces. The Wing’s primary focus areas are aerospace medicine, human effectiveness, science and technology, and human systems integration.
