Laboratory Representative


The U.S. Army Research Laboratory is part of the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC), which has the mission to provide innovative research, development and engineering to produce capabilities that provide decisive overmatch to the Army against the complexities of the current and future operating environments in support of the joint warfighter and the nation. CCDC is a major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Futures Command.

Senior administrators, deans, and department heads from HBCU/MI tour ARL facilities and conduct seminars describing the technical capabilities of their university.

In order to stay on the leading edge of science and technology, a laboratory must have a constant influx of new ideas and fresh perspectives. The ARL brings in recent Ph.Ds or Sc.Ds to conduct high impact basic and applied research under the guidance of an ARL advisor through several postdoctoral research programs. The ARL has over 100 postdocs located at facilities in Adelphi, MD; Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD; White Sands, NM; and Orlando, FL.

There are several ARL-wide postdoctoral research programs available to both U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens. More information is available on the Program Specifics page.

How ARL Technology Lead to a More Efficient Cell Phone

Paratek Microwave, established in March 1998, successfully licensed patents from the Army Research Laboratory with the goal to commercialize electronically tunable components and subsystems developed on the basis of the low loss, tunable family of dielectric materials. The outcome of this licensing effort was the formation of a family of patents developed by Paratek Microwave that led to the development of tunable components like filters, oscillators, delay lines, phase shifters, and electronically scanning and tunable antennas. The addressable markets were for US defense applications and the commercial broadband wireless including mobile phones. Paratek was acquired by Blackberry to incorporate Paratek's tunable technology into their mobile phones.

The technology is a mainstream solution to multiple frequency bands and antenna performance in today's smartphones.
