This quantity is the most recent in a chain of biennial checks of the clinical and technical caliber of the military learn Laboratory (ARL). the present record summarizes findings for the 2007-2008 interval, in which ninety five volunteer specialists in fields of technology and engineering participated within the following actions: traveling ARL every year, receiving formal displays of technical paintings, interpreting amenities, carrying out 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 express a transparent, passionate difficulty for the tip person of its technology--the soldier within the box. whereas directorates have huge program-support missions, there's massive customer-support paintings around the directorates, which universally show mindfulness of the significance of transitioning expertise to aid fast and near-term military wishes. ARL employees additionally proceed to extend their involvement with the broader clinical and engineering neighborhood. This involvement contains tracking correct advancements in other places, conducting major collaborative paintings (including the Collaborative expertise Alliances), and sharing paintings via peer experiences. usually, ARL is operating rather well inside of a suitable study and improvement area of interest and has been demonstrating major accomplishments.

The Sphere Room appears to be slated for basic and applied sound source localization research, including the rapid measurement of head transfer functions both with and without helmets. The Dome Room has characteristics appropriate for experiments concerning the perception of sounds in space and the motion of sounds in azimuth with sound reflections. The new physical facility is impressive, and several well-qualified staff members are in place. It is not as clear, however, that they have identified the research questions that this HRED facility can uniquely answer.
HRED is to be particularly commended for its success in leveraging ARO funding to advance the basic research foundation relating to human decision making as it is affected by Army command-andcontrol structures. : The National Academies Press, 2005. HUMAN RESEARCH AND ENGINEERING DIRECTORATE 33 will involve conducting experiments and observations to explore interacting network effects on human decision making. HRED is successfully leveraging ARO funding to foster greater interdisciplinary dialogue within and outside ARL.
If the group is to continue working in this area, it should develop much more extensive contact with the broader community working in this and related areas, and HRED should consider the sort of commitment of resources and personnel that have positioned the auditory group to make significant contributions in this arena. Network Science In the network science area, major opportunities exist at ARL generally and in HRED in particular to build on their existing unique network capabilities.
