Needs and Uses: This survey will serve multiple purposes. It will guage government, industry, and academia's awareness of, familiarity with, attitudes about, and feelings toward the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). It will also gauge what the AFRL Technology Horizons readership thinks of the magazine and the AFRL. The survey asks what they currently know about the laboratory and their experiences with various outreach programs, such as technology transfer, small business innovation research, independent research and analysis, and dual use science and technology. The survey also asks magazine readers to identify strengths and weaknesses of the magazine to guide the AFRL in future changes to the magazine to better meet readers' needs. The survey will allow for comparisons of data to better target communication efforts to effectively communicate AFRL information to the public. Findings from these surveys of the civilian population will be compared with similar data to be gathered from the internal AFRL leadership at approximately the same time, providing a valuable head-to-head comparison of civilian and AFRL leadership perceptions of how well the AFRL does its job.
Affected Public: Business or Other For-Profit.
Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
OMB Desk Officer: Ms. Jacqueline Zeiher.
