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

The cost of the military study Laboratory Technical review Board (ARLTAB) is to supply biannual tests of the medical and technical caliber of the learn, improvement, and research courses on the military study Laboratory (ARL). the recommendation supplied during this file specializes in technical instead of programmatic issues. The Board is assisted by means of six nationwide learn Council (NRC) panels, each one of which makes a speciality of the element of the ARL software performed by way of certainly one of ARL's six directorates. while asked to take action via ARL, the Board additionally examines paintings that cuts around the directorates. The Board has been acting exams of ARL because 1996. the present document summarizes its discovering for the 2009-2010 interval, in which ninety six volunteer specialists in fields of technology and engineering participated within the following actions: vacationing ARL every year, receiving formal displays of technical paintings, reading amenities, accomplishing technical discussions with ARL employees, and reviewing ARL technical fabrics. The Board remains to be inspired via the final caliber of ARL's technical employees and their paintings and applauds ARL for its transparent, passionate predicament for the top person of its technology--the soldier within the field--and for ARL's proven mindfulness of the significance of transitioning expertise to help speedy and longer-term military wishes. ARL employees additionally proceed to extend their involvement with the broader clinical and engineering group. normally, ARL is operating rather well inside of a suitable study and improvement (R&D) area of interest and has been demonstrating major accomplishments.

The panel thought that the challenge was not as much in the actual work or approach (both seem to be of high quality) as in operational concepts issues: What happens when a soldier is not walking but crawling? How are initial locations established? How can external sensors help? Many of these concerns could be mitigated by some coordination with combat forces personnel.

The traffic patterns used to drive studies of inherently low power protocols must reflect reasonable configurations, particularly in mobile cases, or the results are potentially misleading. If done right, solving the V&V dilemma can, as a side effect, provide significant long-term benefit for future research, both in ARL and in the larger community. BED has for a long time taken care to save the data sets that come out of V&V experiments, and that has provided a rich knowledge base to fuel future work.

Overall, the HRED neuroscience group has reached a level of quality that would allow it to fit in well as a solid, small neuroscience group at a reputable research university. The neuroscience group is commendable for its focus on significant aspects of neuroscience that can be translated into the real world of the battlefield. There is a strong focus on Army-relevant psychophysics and neuroscience and on multimodal integration, and there is a recognition that interindividual differences will play an important role in sensory processing, integration, and cognition.
