In celebration of 25 years of ARL, meet members of the laboratory's staff who have contributed to its success in Army science and technology! From scientists, engineers, mathematicians and technicians to postdoctoral research fellows and support staff members, read about their contributions and what makes them unique members of the ARL family.
Through a wide variety of formulations and manufacturing techniques developed by ARL, these materials were developed as new types of armor materials, packaging materials, support structures such as rotor blades, internal engine components, and many other military applications. They have since found their way into myriad commercial applications in the automotive, recreation, and sporting industries. Among the many products that owe their lightweight and superior strength to these ARL-developed technologies are masts and booms for sailing, the world's best hockey sticks, and new very low cost telephone poles.
