Abstract:

The following provides a brief organizational history of ARL and its various components. At the summary level, it is the story of the Armys attempt to exploit the tremendous technical advances of the past 50 years while preparing to meet the needs of soldiers 20 years into the future. On a more prosaic level, it is an attempt to trace the kaleidoscope of reorganization, restructuring, and reengineering, the almost continuous change endemic to Army and AMO attempts to balance future technology needs against current readiness demands. The front section outlines events and issues leading to the current organization of ARL, and the back section provides brief historical profiles of some of the component activities.
