ARL said Tuesday its “Science and Technology Campaign Plans for 2015-2035” document highlights lab work on extramural research, computing, lethality and protection, advanced materials, mobility, analytical processes, human sciences and information technology.
“The laboratory’s leadership has laid out the technical areas ARL believes are critical to the Army’s long-term future,” said Dr. Troy Alexander, ARL strategic planning associate.
“The detail in the campaign adds greater clarity to the existing research approach.”
ARL’s S&T framework is connected to an Army blueprint that was released earlier this year and describes how the service intends to prepare ground troops for future warfighting missions, according to the release.
The lab plans to explore up to 30 potential focus areas of investment, expertise, collaboration and infrastructure.
