Mathematical Modeling and Optimization Institute

Air Force Research Laboratory


The Mathematical Modeling and Optimization Institute at the University of Florida Research Engineering and Education Facility is a jointly funded effort by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) and the Munitions Directorate (RW) of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). The Institute provides a mechanism for bringing promising graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and established university professors to work directly with RW basic and applied researchers. By partnering the basic researchers with the applied researchers early and throughout the weapons development process, we apply a systems engineering approach to overcome the scientific challenges of future Air Force Systems.
