This quantity is the newest in a chain of biennial exams of the clinical and technical caliber of the military study Laboratory (ARL). the present record summarizes findings for the 2007-2008 interval, in which ninety five volunteer specialists in fields of technological know-how and engineering participated within the following actions: vacationing ARL every year, receiving formal shows of technical paintings, analyzing amenities, conducting technical discussions with ARL employees, and reviewing ARL technical fabrics. the final caliber of ARL's technical employees and their paintings remains to be awesome, in addition to the relevance in their paintings to military wishes. ARL keeps to show a transparent, passionate obstacle for the tip consumer of its technology--the soldier within the box. whereas directorates have huge program-support missions, there's substantial customer-support paintings around the directorates, which universally display mindfulness of the significance of transitioning expertise to help quick and near-term military wishes. ARL employees additionally proceed to extend their involvement with the broader medical and engineering group. This involvement contains tracking suitable advancements in other places, accomplishing major collaborative paintings (including the Collaborative expertise Alliances), and sharing paintings via peer experiences. usually, ARL is operating rather well inside a suitable learn and improvement area of interest and has been demonstrating major accomplishments.

The development of new facilities such as the Wireless Emulation Laboratory and the Asymmetric Computing Laboratory indicates that ARL is serious about being agile in the face of new technologies. One exception is the need for stronger explicit support for computational scientists and professional HPC staff within AC&CSD for research into highperformance algorithm and program development. , running and managing jobs in machine rooms). Some of the other directorates, such as the Sensors and Electron Devices Directorate, have leveraged the building of new facilities into an attraction for prospective employees.

Military laboratories in several countries publish in this area. In addition, major automobile-manufacturing groups are involved in fundamental studies of night-vision enhancement technologies. It is not clear whether the HRED researchers have collaborated or consulted with the many groups around the world that are studying this problem. Certainly collaboration would be appropriate with the visual scientists and engineers at the Army’s Night Vision Laboratory at Fort Belvoir. An HRED-organized workshop on this topic might provide a means to focus some of the activities better.

In contrast, the Human Factors Integration Division conducts laboratory and field data analyses, develops modeling and human simulation programs, and performs applied research to ensure that soldier performance requirements are adequately considered in technology development and system design. 2 in Appendix A respectively show the funding and staffing profiles for HRED and the other directorates and indicate the relative levels of effort now devoted to basic and applied research and service activities.
