Celebrating 25 years of excellence in Army Science and Technology

The United States Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is a global resource and national leader in which every ARL employee and all Americans can and should take pride. Since its inception in 1992, ARL's intellectual diversity, mission-focus, collegiality, ethics, efficiency, rigor and productivity have yielded colossal benefits to the United States on and off the battlefield.

In October 2017, ARL will achieve 25 years of world-changing contributions of science, technology and analysis to the Department of the Army. ARL has seized this opportunity through a year-long initiative, known as "ARL25." Under the central theme "Celebrating 25 Years of Excellence in Army Science and Technology," ARL25 is a wide-ranging undertaking to share the story of ARL's exceptional people and culture, world-changing inventions and ongoing commitment to maintaining the United States' enviable position as home of the nation's premier laboratory for land forces.
