ARL Science & Technology

The Soldiers of today and tomorrow depend on the Army's corporate laboratory to deliver the scientific discoveries, technological advances, and the analyses that provide warfighters with the capabilities with which to execute full-spectrum operations. The U.S. Army Research Laboratory's (ARL) investment portfolio is focused on maturing technologies for transition principally to the Research, Development, and Engineering Centers (RDECs), but also to our other partners in the Army Transformation Program Executive Office/Program Managers (PEOs/PMs), the Army Test and Evaluation Center (ATEC), the Training & Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Battle Labs, the other services, and the private sector.
