This quantity is the most recent in a chain of biennial exams of the clinical and technical caliber of the military examine Laboratory (ARL). the present document summarizes findings for the 2007-2008 interval, in which ninety five volunteer specialists in fields of technological know-how and engineering participated within the following actions: vacationing ARL each year, receiving formal displays of technical paintings, interpreting amenities, conducting technical discussions with ARL employees, and reviewing ARL technical fabrics. the general caliber of ARL's technical employees and their paintings is still amazing, in addition to the relevance in their paintings to military wishes. ARL maintains to show a transparent, passionate quandary for the top consumer of its technology--the soldier within the box. whereas directorates have huge program-support missions, there's huge customer-support paintings around the directorates, which universally reveal mindfulness of the significance of transitioning expertise to aid speedy and near-term military wishes. ARL employees additionally proceed to extend their involvement with the broader medical and engineering group. This involvement contains tracking appropriate advancements in different places, accomplishing major collaborative paintings (including the Collaborative know-how Alliances), and sharing paintings via peer studies. normally, ARL is operating rather well inside a suitable learn and improvement area of interest and has been demonstrating major accomplishments.

A vital new account of how anti-submarine struggle is conducted, with a spotlight on either historical and present-day operations. This new book shows how until eventually 1944 U-boats operated as submersible torpedo craft which relied seriously at the floor for flow and charging their batteries. This development was once repeated in WWII till Allied anti-submarine countermeasures had compelled the Germans to change their current U-boats with the schnorkel.

A related criterion addresses the qualifications of the research team vis-à-vis the research challenges. With just a few exceptions, the match seems to be present. -level work by current employees is a very positive indication. D. students. 24 2007–2008 assessment of the army research laboratory The next criterion deals with the structure of programs in terms of employing the appropriate mix of theory, computation, and experimentation. The results here are again mixed. In cases where projects take advantage of ARL’s outstanding test facilities and weave in a feedback path that validates theory and drives more robust algorithm and system development, the results are usually strong, with obvious opportunities for transition.
2 Tactical Human Integration of Networked Knowledge program, network-centric operation involves an abundance of information received from many different sources (human and sensor) and presented across multiple modes (text, audio, visual). 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.
