2017 Posters - Sciences for Maneuver

Sciences for Maneuver area is focused on gaining a fundamental understanding of advanced mobility systems and their supporting architectures. This area heavily relies on ARL’s research expertise and facilities devoted to decision support sciences, autonomy, and high-efficiency energy generation, storage, and distribution. Discoveries, innovations, and developments made in this area are expected to significantly impact the Army of the future by greatly enhancing mobility.  ARL’s Sciences for Maneuver research is focused on gaining a greater fundamental understanding of advanced mobility systems and their supporting architectures—critical to the future Army’s movement, sustainment, and maneuverability. Knowledge gained through these research efforts will lead to technological developments that make it possible to design, fabricate, integrate, control, and support platforms that will have a significant impact on Power Projection Superiority for the Army of 2030.
