Ribbon cutting celebrates facility renovations, AEDC and AFRL partnership

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the von Kármán Gas Dynamics Facility to recognize the renovations taking place at the facility to accommodate the new High Speed Experimentation Branch at AEDC. The branch, headed by Air Force Research Laboratory staff with Glenn Liston as branch chief, can now conduct foundational and systems research in propulsion, aeronautics and structural applications providing technology maturation related to hypersonic flight. The VKF building renovations will also be beneficial to AEDC team members who support the three VKF wind tunnels, as well as those who support APTU. Pictured taking part in the ribbon cutting ceremony are Dr. Edward Kraft, AEDC chief technologist; Col. James Krajewski, chief of AEDC Test Support Division; Glenn Liston, chief of AEDC High Speed Experimentation Branch; and Dr. Mark Mehalic, AEDC executive director. (Photo by Jacqueline Cowan)
