Air Force officials have selected eight active-duty officers for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Service Chiefs’ Fellows Program.

DARPA serves as the Department of Defense’s central research and development agency and makes pivotal investments in breakthrough technologies to support national security and U.S. strategic goals.

The fellows program was established to expose military officers and government civilians to a unique organization whose mission is to develop innovative and often high-risk research ideas offering significant technological impact.  

“These fellowships help participants gain important research experience and then return to the field with an increased knowledge of how DARPA supports DoD’s missions,” said Kris Hunter, deputy chief of officer developmental education at the Air Force’s Personnel Center.

During the three-month fellowship, participants from each service branch learn about specific technologies that are of interest to them and to their respective services as well as the breadth of DARPA’s research and mission.

The 2018 Air Force participants are:
- Lt. Col. David Chaboya, Headquarters Air Force
- Lt. Col. Nathan Taylor, Air Force Materiel Command
- Maj. Michael Fritts, Air Force Materiel Command
- Maj. John Hobson, Air Education and Training Command
- Maj. John McShane, Headquarters Air Force
- Maj. John Powers, Air Education and Training Command
- Maj. Allen Varghese, Air Force Space Command
- Maj. John Wisecup, Air Combat Command
