Abstract : The Frank J. Seiler Research Laboratory (FJSRL) is an Air Force Systems Command (AFSC) organization charged with (1) planning and executing USAF research programs in aerospace-mechanics, applied mathematics and chemistry; (2) supporting research by USAF Academy faculty and cadets; and (3) functioning as the AFSC focal point for USAF Academy research and development efforts proposed for AFSC sponsorship. FJSRL is the only USAF basic research lab. Within the Aerospace-Mechanics Directorate, the authors have two projects which are particularly suited to the total mission outlined above. These are the laser gyro and laser damage projects. They discuss both the background and plans for each of these experimental research efforts.
