The U.S. Army Research Laboratory ARL is the Armys 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 ARLs initiatives to support the Armys vision. It presents highlights of the Federated Laboratory FedLab program and many recent technical and managerial accomplishments.
