The Air Force Scientific Advisory Board will meet next week to learn the results of a fiscal year 2020 study on how the service plans to select and manage future vanguard programs, according to a notice published in the Federal Register.

Vanguard programs are intended to accelerate game-changing technology through prototyping and experimentation for quick transition into programs of record. The Air Force's inaugural efforts, which the service launched last year, are Skyborg, Golden Horde and Navigation Technology Satellite-3.

The Sept. 15 AFSAB meeting will occur virtually and be open to the public.
