AY20 RTF Report and Outlook
Plans for AY21:
The AU Research Coordinators have commissioned seven Research Task Forces. Two of them are new and based on a demand signal from outside sponsors: Russia Strategic Initiative (RSI EUCOM) and Resilience (HAFA1Z/Chaplain Corps). Two are revivals of pre-AY20 RTFs (Cyber and Nuclear Deterrence), and three build on last year’s success (ACTS, ISR and ISL).
Lessons Learned and Applied:
In AY20, the Integration Cell supported seven Research Task Forces, which executed two-term elective projects based primarily in ACSC and AWC. This was the last year under the old model, with some experimentation in reaching out to the eSchool and SOS.
Drs. Margaret Sankey and Kenneth Johnson provide oversight of the University's Research Task Forces and support the Air University Chairs.
