mission applications, and communicating in a contested environment. The 
SAB will receive presentations that address relevant subjects to these 
studies and the SAB mission. This board meeting will also include the

ongoing study outbriefs, as well as discussion of the SAB's review of 
Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) science and technology 
investments. The remaining FY13 Board schedule will also be discussed.

The Administrative Assistant of the Air Force, in consultation with the 
Air Force General Counsel, has agreed that the public interest requires

public wishing to provide input to the SAB should submit a written 
statement in accordance with 41 CFR 102-3.140(c) and section 10(a)(3)
