Abstract : Welcome to the Fiscal Year 2011 edition of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Annual Review. This publication briefly describes who we are and highlights some of our significant scientific and technical achievements of the last year. The size of this organization seven distinct directorates and offices with over two thousand military and civilian members and the scope of research and analysis in which we are involved, limits us to select only a few items to present here as a representative sample of our overall accomplishments. ARL s research continuum stretches from early, long-term, basic research, to evolving new technologies, to supporting current operations. We organize our research and analysis efforts within ten Major Laboratory Programs (MLPs); Extramural Basic Research, Networks, Human Dimension, Lethality, Protection, Mobility, Power and Energy, Sensors, Survivability/Lethality Analysis and Simulation and Training Technology. This review begins with an introduction that includes our organization, personnel, awards and other recognition earned by ARL and its personnel. The remainder of the publication is structured around the ten MLPs identified above. Again, the accomplishments presented here, while only a small sample of our efforts over the past year, are representative of the skill, dedication and teamwork of our in-house staff and our partners in academia and industry.
