AFRL New Mexico

About AFRL New Mexico

The Air Force Research Laboratory is dedicated to leading the discovery, development, and integration of technologies for air, space and cyberspace, at nine technology centers across the country.

AFRL New Mexico is home to two centers, Directed Energy and Space Vehicles, which employ 1,800 scientists, engineers and mathematicians. They are civil servants and contractors, working in cutting-edge technologies, in collaboration with the nation’s top academic and industry leaders.

The work takes place in some of the most advanced laboratories in the world, and is largely based at Kirtland Air Force Base, Albuquerque, NM. The city is the hub of space research and development, and therefore affords collaboration with other co-located national labs. In addition to its low cost-of-living, New Mexico is known for its ample access to some of the country’s best recreational opportunities, cultural sites and cuisine.
