Special submission from ARL

In October 2017, the United States Army Research Laboratory will commemorate a 25-year anniversary of collaboration and innovation resulting in world-changing contributions of science, technology and analysis to the Department of the Army.

To commemorate a quarter-century of scientific achievement and collaboration, ARL is launching “ARL25,” a yearlong, coordinated initiative of events, communications and partnership activities to engage government and private sector partners, increase public awareness of ARL’s importance to the nation, and build on the foundation of scientific innovation that will ensure the United States maintains its enviable position as home of the world’s premier laboratory for land forces.

Since its inception in 1992, ARL has evolved successfully from a collection of individual laboratories into an organization meeting multiple mission mandates. The research that ARL performs addresses critical knowledge gaps to inform and enable future Army capabilities.
