Study Selection Process

The Secretary of the Air Force and the Chief of Staff of the Air Force assign topics for the SAB to study each year. The SAB Secretariat annually calls for study topic nominations allowing anyone to submit study topics for consideration. Working from these nominations the SAB's Executive Committee synthesizes study topics of vital importance to the Air Force prioritizing them based on a number of factors. In addition, the Secretary of the Air Force and the Chief of Staff of the Air Force often identify topics along with prioritizing and selecting from the Executive Committee's recommendations.

Study nominations can be made throughout the year with the cutoff on 19 February 2017.
