In addition, the engineers at SAFE possess an in-depth working knowledge of all aspects of the DoD research, development, testing and evaluation (RDT&E) effort; basic research, applied research, advanced technology development, demonstration / validation, and engineering / manufacturing development (technology transition).
SAFE’s work also includes engineering research for the United States Air Force Academy’s Center for Aircraft Structural Life Extension (CAStLE). SAFE is not only performing R&D on the corrosion effects on structural integrity for CAStLE, but also is mentoring interdisciplinary undergraduate cadets in USAFA’s experimental mechanics, capstone design, and independent study courses. With SAFE’s guidance, cadets are contributing to the DoD Technical Corrosion Collaboration.
