The NRC Army Research Laboratory Technical Assessment Board (ARLTAB) provides biennial assessments of the scientific and technical quality of the research, development, and analysis programs at the Army Research Laboratory, focusing on ballistics sciences, human sciences, information sciences, materials sciences, and mechanical sciences. This report, a summary of the board’s findings for the first biennial assessment, discusses the assessment process used by the board and its five panels; provides detailed assessments of each of the ARL core technical competency areas reviewed in 2013–2014; and presents findings and recommendations common across multiple competency areas.
