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 document summarizes findings for the 2007-2008 interval, within which ninety five volunteer specialists in fields of technology and engineering participated within the following actions: vacationing ARL every year, receiving formal displays of technical paintings, analyzing amenities, undertaking technical discussions with ARL employees, and reviewing ARL technical fabrics. the final caliber of ARL's technical employees and their paintings remains to be remarkable, in addition to the relevance in their paintings to military wishes. ARL maintains to convey a transparent, passionate difficulty for the top person of its technology--the soldier within the box. whereas directorates have huge program-support missions, there's significant 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 neighborhood. This involvement comprises tracking suitable advancements somewhere else, undertaking major collaborative paintings (including the Collaborative expertise Alliances), and sharing paintings via peer stories. more often than not, ARL is operating rather well inside a suitable study and improvement area of interest and has been demonstrating major accomplishments.
