Hosted By: Air Force Independent Research and Development (IR&D) Office, Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Personnel Recovery Mission Area (PRMA)

Location: TBD

The 2022 PR IR&D TIM will focus on Air Combat Command’s (ACC’s) all-domain PR and Combat Rescue mission area as it applies to near-peer denied, highly contested, and semi-permissive environments. Moreover, it will include crosscutting topics that may be applicable to more than one aspect of the PR mission and/or future modernization efforts including training programs and equipment for sustainment, survivability and recovery of isolated personnel (IP)*.

Problem Statement: Future PR Force Planning projects a lack of capacity for global Combat Rescue force posturing and capability across the competition continuum. The future operating environment presents multiple dilemmas for Combat Rescue forces within the competitive battle space from both near-peer capabilities and threats to environmentally challenging conditions. Regional employment/deployment responsiveness demands the capability to rapidly identify/sustain/recover IP and/or Airman within Highly Contested Environments (HCE) and/or Non-Permissive Environments (NPE).
