A team of scientists from ARL and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed and demonstrated a pioneering synthetic biology tool to deliver DNA programming into a broad range of bacteria.
This research was recently published in the journal Nature Microbiology, and was featured as the cover of the September 2018 issue.
The research is a prelude to the first DOD service laboratory synthetic biology program, termed Living Materials, set to officially launch in October 2018.
The long-term vision of this program is to impart living, reactive and responsive functions to materials for operation in Army relevant environments yielding disruptive capabilities, such as tunable assembled materials, self-healing and adaptation for advanced protection and transformative logistics. #Syntheticbiology #Selfhealing #DisruptiveTechnology
As the #USArmy prepares for future combat operations, it needs new platforms, with future growth margins, to maintain our ability to dominate the battlefield.
Cross-functional teams, which are part of the new U.S. Army Futures Command, are hard at work to put new capability into the hands of warfighters in the next three to five years. #FutureFocused
The U.S. Army swore in its new senior research scientist for Soldier Performance in Socio-Technical Systems in a ceremony at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory Sept. 13.
Dr. Yun-Sheng (Jessie) C. Chen, a researcher in the lab's Human Research and Engineering Directorate since in 2003, has worked as a research psychologist. Her interests include human-agent teaming, agent transparency, human-robot interaction and human supervisory control.
Welcome to SGM David Snipes, the new senior enlisted advisor to the U.S. Army Research Laboratory! The sergeant major toured Aberdeen Proving Ground research facilities Sept. 12 and met with researchers.
SGM took time to sit in our studio and answer some questions about his new role at the lab.
#NationalHispanicHeritageMonth is celebrated from September 15th to October 15th. During this celebration, the Army commemorates and celebrates the contributions of Hispanic Americans to the nation, society, and culture.
#PatriotDay: September 11, 2001.
As we look back on the day we were attacked, we remember and honor the lives lost, and remember the day we became stronger.
Congratulations to Dr. Keith Krapels, director of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory's Sensors and Electron Devices Directorate, who took the oath of office during a Senior Executive Service pinning and induction ceremony hosted by ARL Director Dr. Philip Perconti this morning at the Adelphi Lab Center. #USArmy #TeamARL #FutureFocused
Scientists from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and UC Santa Barbara have discovered that most people cannot distinguish between liking a user interface and making good choices. Does technology really enhance our decision-making ability?
Find out how Army researchers are delving into this question: Does technology really enhance our decision-making ability?
Officials from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory announced the passing of one of its senior scientists. Dr. Brad Forch, the Army's senior research scientist for ballistics, has died. There will be a memorial service at the Mallette Training Facility Auditorium at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, 10 a.m., Sept. 14, officials said.
September is National Preparedness Month.
This year's national theme, "Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How," is a reminder that people should always be prepared by having a plan. #FutureFocused
“In this battlefield richly populated by intelligent things, humans will be essentially one of the species of intelligence.”
— Dr. Alexander Kott
U.S. Army Research Laboratory,
“Artificial intelligence will inevitably be one of those leap-ahead technologies that enable Soldiers to survive on the battlefield and win.”
- Gen. James C. McConville, Vice
Chief of Staff of the Army
A collaborative research project between #USArmy researchers and academia has led to a best paper award at the 2018 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, or IEEE, Conference on Cognitive and Computational Aspects of Situation Management, a multi-disciplinary conference on situation management in complex dynamic system.
The final week of the Inaugural #USArmy xTechSearch Competition is taking place at the University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies in Playa Vista, California. Small and nontraditional businesses are pitching new ideas to a panel of Army scientists and engineers, all with the hope of winning cash prizes and building a working relationship with the Army S&T community. #xTechSearch #Collaboration #SmallBusinessGoals #Phase2
