WPAFB, Ohio — The complex is being named in honor of Major General Harry G. Armstrong, a pioneer in the field of aerospace medicine and the second Surgeon General of the U.S. Air Force.
The U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine, the Human Effectiveness Directorate, the Human Performance Integration Directorate, and the Naval Medical Research Unit - Dayton will occupy the $239 million, 680,000-square-foot facility.
The 711 HPW and the complex were established in response to the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure directives. To implement BRAC, the Air Force activated the 711th HPW in March of 2008.
The activation established the first human-centric warfare wing to consolidate research, consultation and education under one organization. The Wing is composed of three mission units: the Human Effectiveness Directorate, the U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine, and the Human Performance Integration Directorate.
