Squadron innovation funds drive 3D runway surface scanning, re-creation effort

The 704th Test Group, Aerospace Survivability and Safety Office, at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, has received $23,000 as part of the Squadron Innovation Funds provided by the Air Force Material Command. This funding is being used to further develop the unit’s 3D Runway Surface Scanning and Surface Re-Creation project at the Landing Gear Test Facility. Above is one example of U.S Air Force concrete runway texture. This particular image is of the Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, runway with various aggregate sizes and surface texture.
