2017 Posters - Sciences for Lethality & Protection

ARL's investments in Sciences for Lethality and Protection are focused on gaining a greater understanding of emerging overmatch technologies (EOT) 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 and personnel protection systems.
