Abstract : The United States Air Force Scientific Advisory Board (USAF/SB) was asked by the USAF Chief of Staff to look into USAF Battlelabs and report back to him by June 2000. By asking, Is the current Air Force Battlelab structure and architecture meeting AF needs? the CSAF tasked the Study Panel to determine the best structure for AF Battlelabs to prove innovative operations and logistics concepts to advance AF core competencies and drive revisions to AF Doctrine, Organization, Training, Requirements, and Acquisitions. He further asked the Panel to propose rationale and criteria for establishing and/or disestablishing Battlelabs as well as provide some insights of how much innovation the Air Force can afford. In answering these questions, the Panel visited all six existing AF Battlelabs and had a thorough briefing and discussion with all Battlelab personnel based on a series of detailed common questions provided to each Battlelab in advance. The Study Panel also visited interservice Battlelabs as well as ad hoc Battlelabs in order to formulate pertinent observations, findings, alternative solutions, and recommendations. This report covers the results of this activity.
