Abstract: The U.S. Army Research Laboratory's (ARL's) Human Research and Engineering Directorate conducts a broad-based program of scientific research and technology development directed into two focus areas: (1) enhancing the effectiveness of Soldier performance and Soldier-machine interactions in mission contexts and (2) providing the U.S. Army and ARL with human factors integration leadership to ensure that Soldier performance requirements are adequately considered in technology development and system design. This document provides an overview of the following thrust areas: human robot interaction, human system integration, neuroscience, and Soldier performance.
