The Air Force UAV Battlelab is part of a brand new Air Force program designed to invigorate conceptual thinking in critical mission areas. In the fall of 1996, Chief of Staff of the Air Force General Ronald Fogleman directed the establishment of six Battlelabs. The six Battlelabs are the UAV Battlelab (UAVB), the Air Expeditionary Force Battlelab (AEFB), the Information Warfare Battlelab (IWB), the Space Warfare Battlelab (SPB), the Command and Control Battle Management Battlelab (C2BMB), and the Force Protection (FP) Battlelab. With the exception of the AEF Battlelab, all Battlelabs are attached to Air Warfare Centers to take advantage of existing test and tactics development infrastructure. By design, the new battlelabs are small (less than 25 people), focused, and unique from other Air Force laboratory organizations
