Abstract : For the past 35 years, the Aeronautical Systems Center (ASC) has served as the nation's premier organization for military aeronautics. ASC's mission encompasses all stages in the research, development, and acquisition of aircraft and their related equipment and technologies. Headquartered at historic Wright Field (Area B, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio), ASC owns one of the largest scientific and engineering establishments in the world, including the Wright Laboratory with its associated facilities and personnel-the largest of the Air Force's 'super labs.' Since 1992, ASC's mission has also expanded to include the 88th Air Base Wing, which operates Wright-Patterson from its headquarters in Area C, and the 74th Medical Group, which operates the USAF Medical Center in Area A, one of the largest military medical facilities in the nation.
