By Army Research Laboratory Technical Assessment Board, Laboratory Assessments Board, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, National Research Council

This quantity is the newest in a sequence of biennial checks of the medical and technical caliber of the military study Laboratory (ARL). the present record summarizes findings for the 2007-2008 interval, in which ninety five volunteer specialists in fields of technology and engineering participated within the following actions: traveling ARL every year, receiving formal displays of technical paintings, studying amenities, conducting technical discussions with ARL employees, and reviewing ARL technical fabrics. the final caliber of ARL's technical employees and their paintings remains to be striking, in addition to the relevance in their paintings to military wishes. ARL maintains to show a transparent, passionate situation for the tip person of its technology--the soldier within the box. whereas directorates have huge program-support missions, there's massive customer-support paintings around the directorates, which universally display mindfulness of the significance of transitioning expertise to help fast and near-term military wishes. ARL employees additionally proceed to extend their involvement with the broader clinical and engineering group. This involvement contains tracking appropriate advancements in other places, undertaking major collaborative paintings (including the Collaborative expertise Alliances), and sharing paintings via peer stories. regularly, ARL is operating rather well inside a suitable learn and improvement area of interest and has been demonstrating major accomplishments.

Human decision makers are currently unable to make effective use of this information for reasons including information overload as well as network bandwidth and other hardware constraints that introduce lags, information loss, and degradation, leading to performance problems that include attention misdirection and poorly calibrated trust in the information received. HRED is initiating a multiyear program—the Tactical Human Integration with Networked Knowledge (THINK) Army Technology Objective—scheduled to start in FY 2009 and to extend through FY 2012, to analyze the contributors to performance problems and identify methods for overcoming these problems.

At a minimum, the ARO projects provide access to a broad array of experts for future collaboration. The Board looks forward to learning more about such collaborative efforts and hopes that these result in additional joint (ARL and outside collaborators) publications, visitations, workshops, and seminars. The near completion of the very sophisticated Environment for Auditory Research (EAR) ­facility. This facility is composed of five different sound exposure laboratories and a control room. The ­facility can present to subjects a large array of auditory experiences, some of which may be unique to this ­facility, raising the possibility of conducting original basic research that could not be performed anywhere else.

Now is the time to reach out to other experts, to set up workshops and visitations, and to plan carefully an equally strong program of both basic and applied research that will result in this being seen as a first-class national resource in the future. HRED should consider collaborating with acoustics experts among the staff of the ARL Sensors and Electron Devices Directorate. Night-Vision Research Night-vision enhancement technologies are rapidly being deployed in both the civilian and the defense sectors.
