Abstract : The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is the Army's primary source of fundamental and applied research. Its mission is to provide the Army with the key technologies and analytical support that are necessary to ensure future land warfare supremacy. ARL-with its world-class facilities and eminent workforce, which includes about 1,250 scientists and engineers-constitutes the largest source of integrated science and technology research and development in the Army. The lab has a presence at two major sites, both in Maryland: the Adelphi Laboratory Center (ALC) in Adelphi and Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) in Aberdeen. ARL also operates unique outdoor facilities at the White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) in New Mexico. In addition, the lab has a long and thriving partnership with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) that embodies two ARL divisions. These are collocated with NASA activities in Cleveland, OH, and Hampton, VA. ARL also receives considerable benefit from the Army Research Office (ARO), which was realigned with the lab last year and is located in Research Triangle Park, NC. This review provides a look ahead. It focuses on ARL's initiatives to support the Army's vision. It presents highlights of the Federated Laboratory (FedLab) program and many recent technical and managerial accomplishments.
