The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is the corporate laboratory for the U.S. army, which bridges scientific and military communities. The ARL is critical in maintaining the United StatesaEURO (TM) dominant military power through its advanced research and analysis capabilities. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's Army Research Laboratory Technical Assessment Board (ARLTAB) conducts biennial assessments of the scientific and technical quality of the facilities. These assessments are necessary to ensure that the ARLaEURO (TM)s resources and quality of programs are maximized.
2017-2018 Assessment of the Army Research Laboratory includes findings and recommendations regarding the quality of the ARLaEURO (TM)s research, development, and analysis programs. The report of the assessment is subdivided by the ARLaEURO (TM)s Science and Technology campaigns, including Materials Research, Sciences for Lethality and Protection, Information Sciences, Computational Sciences, Sciences for Maneuver, Human Sciences, and Analysis and Assessment. This biennial report summarizes the findings for the 2017-2018 period.
