The Army Research Laboratory ARLs mission is to provide innovative science, technology, and analysis to enable full-spectrum operations. The Human Research and Engineering Directorate HRED of the ARL has a dual mission to conduct scientific research and technology development focused on optimizing Soldier performance to increase system mission effectiveness, and provide human system integration HSI leadership to ensure that Soldier performance requirements are adequately considered in technology development and system design. HREDs scientific research explores areas such as neuroscience, cognitive science, visual auditory processing to identify ways to extend the Soldiers physical, perceptual, cognitive, and psychological performance across all operations. As a leader in HSI, HRED develops analysis methods, models, and simulations to conduct early assessment of design concept and implementation of key human system design principles. This brief will provide an overview of HREDs research focus in these mission areas.
