ARL’s S&T investments in Sciences-for-Lethality and Protection are focused on gaining a greater understanding of emerging technologies that support weapon systems, protection systems, and the mechanisms of injury affecting the warfighter. Knowledge gained through these research efforts will lead to technological developments that make it possible to develop a broad array of lethality systems as well as resilient vehicle protection systems. In addition, knowledge gained from understanding injury mechanisms will be leveraged to develop robust systems.
Technologies resulting from these efforts will have significant impact on the Lethality and Protection Superiority of the Army of 2030.
