ARL celebrates 20th Anniversary


October 2012 marks the 20th Anniversary of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory.

In October 1992, ARL was formed, emerging out of the Base Realignment and Closure process and other evaluations. The new lab consolidated the seven corporate labs of the Laboratory Command with other Army research elements to form a centralized laboratory focused on scientific research, technology development and analysis.

As one of eight major laboratories and Research, Development and Engineering Centers, ARL’s talented workforce of scientists, engineers and support staff work together to achieve the ultimate goal of developing and bringing to fruition breakthrough innovations for soldiers’ current and future missions.

“In this the 20th year of ARL’s inception, we celebrate the rich heritage of contributions our dedicated scientists and engineers have made to the body of science and engineering knowledge and its application to the needs of our nation’s Soldiers,” said ARL Acting Director Dr. John Pellegrino. “It is my hope that the depth and breadth of those contributions will continue to grow, as we strive together each day to seek, explore, and provide the very best scientific and technological advice and solutions to those Soldiers who are willing to sacrifice everything in defense of our great nation.”

Currently, ARL scientists and engineers are pioneering research in areas such as neuroergonomics, energetic materials and propulsion, individual warfighter protection, energy science, electronics technologies, network sciences, virtual interfaces and synthetic environments and autonomous systems.

In addition, the laboratory continues to collaborate with leading researchers in industry and academia to further the science and technology vital to the welfare and safety of our soldiers on the battlefield.
