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 (ARL). For 2011–2012, ARL asked the board to examine crosscutting work in the areas of autonomous systems and network science. The assessment showed that ARL staff demonstrate clear, passionate mindfulness of the importance of transitioning technology to support immediate and longer-term Army needs. In general, ARL is working very well in an appropriate research and development niche and has been demonstrating significant accomplishments.
