Spray Characterization FacilityThe U.S. Army Research Laboratory operates laboratories, testing facilities, ranges, offices and many one-of-a-kind facilities in several prominent locations around the U.S. In many cases, the laboratory’s collaborations with other nations, laboratories, academia and industry span the globe. ARL operates from several primary locations including Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., Adelphi Laboratory Center, Md., Research Triangle Park, N.C., Orlando, Fla. And White Sands Missile Range, N.M., with field elements strategically located at Army installations from coast to coast. This section provides an overview of ARL’s facilities at these locations and how they help achieve success in the management of each of ARL’s S&T Campaign Plans. The diversity of our laboratories coupled with a world-class research team are leading to unprecedented capabilities for our nation’s Soldiers—10, 20 and even 30 years from now. As you learn about ARL’s facilities, you will quickly see why ARL is leading the Department of Defense in the areas of discovery, innovation and transition of basic and applied research.  Download a document highlighting key ARL facilities.
