We are currently engaging in our first Enterprise Challenge designed to connect Air Force needs to local entrepreneurs who can provide timely solutions.



Our 2nd Annual Hyperspace Challenge just wrapped up. 



While AFRL New Mexico employs a team of in-house scientists and engineers that is second to none, we know that in order to provide the most innovative science and technology to the Air Force we must leverage the knowledge and expertise of the private sector. In fact, every year we contract out about 80%, or $500 million, to businesses both large and small


If you are a small business interested in working with Air Force Research Laboratory New Mexico, our Small Business Office is here to help.

We know that working with a large federal lab can be daunting. That’s why our experienced team is dedicated to helping small businesses navigate through the process.
