Abstract:

Since 2013, responding to a request from the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology, the US Army Research Laboratory has been conducting an annual series of meetings. The intent of these meetings is to explore novel scientific opportunities that may lead to providing the Army with an advantage in future conflicts. The temporal scope of these explorations is strategic in nature, with time horizon being on the order of 20 to 30 years. The meetings pay particular attention to the identification of research gaps and barriers that may hinder the achievement of the potential novel capabilities and of possible approaches of overcoming these gaps and barriers. These meetings are called the Army Science Planning and Strategy Meetings. This report covers the findings and recommendations developed in 4 meetings held in the first half of fiscal year 2018, covering the following topics Reasoning About and Interacting with the Physical World, Learning and Reasoning in Complex Data Environment, Sensing and Modeling Social Dynamics, and Uncertainty Quantification.
