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

This quantity is the most recent in a chain of biennial tests of the medical and technical caliber of the military learn Laboratory (ARL). the present file summarizes findings for the 2007-2008 interval, within which ninety five volunteer specialists in fields of technology and engineering participated within the following actions: traveling ARL each year, receiving formal displays of technical paintings, studying amenities, accomplishing technical discussions with ARL employees, and reviewing ARL technical fabrics. the general caliber of ARL's technical employees and their paintings is still striking, in addition to the relevance in their paintings to military wishes. ARL keeps to convey a transparent, passionate challenge for the tip 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 reveal mindfulness of the significance of transitioning know-how to aid speedy 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. in most cases, ARL is operating rather well inside a suitable examine and improvement area of interest and has been demonstrating major accomplishments.

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. A shift in the activities within the area of network science research. The 2005-2006 assessment report recognized the potential value from the work being done in social networks and the cognition area, and it encouraged continued activity that leveraged interactions with others within and outside ARL.

Also, the potential value to the Mobile Network Modeling Institute of using the Blue Radio as a platform for demonstrating and validating underlying models cannot be underestimated. This is a platform that ARL understands (because ARL designed it) and that was built for an Army application (ground-level sensor networks) that has few if any commercial counterparts (cellular telephones, for example, operate several feet above the ground, with communication with antennas that are quite tall and have different power characteristics from those of the Blue Radio).

The specific ­projects do not appear likely to produce results that could be published in the peer-reviewed literature—an indication that the approach being taken is not current. For example, the sensor fusion algorithms under study were very basic. A quick survey of the literature suggests that other laboratories HUMAN RESEARCH AND ENGINEERING DIRECTORATE 31 are experimenting with much more sophisticated algorithms for cue combination. Many of these seem to be based on Bayesian approaches in which an effort is made to determine which of several signals is providing the most information at this location and at this time.
