The future of the Nation’s technology is right here in Central NY.

The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Rome (AFRL Rome) is home to the AFRL Information Directorate, leading the nation in the most critical technologies for the future of U.S. innovation: Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, and Cyber (C4I + Cyber). The Lab’s high-impact, game-changing technologies touch every aspect of the Air Force, and the Nation.

Autonomous Systems. Quantum Computing. Advanced Communications. Artificial Intelligence.

Transforming “Big Data” into Knowledge.


The opportunities for growth are enormous – but we need your help to bring them home. AFRL Rome directly employs over 700 civilians and more than 50 military personnel, who work alongside 422 civilian contractors on site – and offers a huge opportunity for future job growth as information science becomes more important to our Nation, attracting growing defense investment.

As the Air Force grows, so should Central New York.

The Alliance is working to make that happen.
