Air and Space Superiority for the 21st Century

Technologies that will guarantee the air and space superiority of the United States in the 21st Century were identified in a recent study conducted by the U.S. Air Force Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Richard G. Bradley, a member of the advisory board, will discuss those findings on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 2 p.m. in the NASA Langley H.J.E. Reid Conference Center, Hampton, Va. A media briefing will take place at 1 p.m. in the Reid Center.

Bradley, who chaired the aircraft and propulsion panel of the advisory board, will present the air vehicle concepts that are envisioned, along with a survey of the supporting technologies that are required. The aircraft and propulsion panel was chartered to identify and recommend technologies and concepts that will enhance the Air Force's ability to accomplish its mission in the future.

Bradley is the deputy for development for the Systems Development Center (SDC) at Lockheed Martin Tactical Aircraft Systems. The SDC is responsible for the initiation and development of new products and programs as well as the required technologies.

Bradley's technical experience encompasses a broad range of flight-related aeronautical disciplines and he has contributed to the design and development of several tactical aircraft. Bradley earned his bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees in aerospace engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
