Airmen and Air Force civilians have far surpassed their counterparts across the Defense Department in responding to Defense Secretary Robert Gates' call for creative ideas on improving efficiency, as of Sept. 7, 2010. Of the 10,464 total submittals by that day, a whopping 6,944 of them—or two-thirds—had come from Air Force personnel, according to DOD's tracking figures. The deadline for submitting proposals is Sept. 24, 2010. Here, Air Force Research Laboratory engineers discuss with airmen at JB Charleston, S.C., how incorporating robots could help improve the efficiency of the base's aerial port, July 16, 2010.
