By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Laboratory Assessments Board, Army Research Laboratory Technical Assessment Board

The cost of the military study Laboratory Technical evaluation Board (ARLTAB) is to supply biannual tests of the clinical and technical caliber of the learn, improvement, and research courses on the military learn Laboratory (ARL). the recommendation supplied during this document specializes in technical instead of programmatic concerns. The Board is assisted through six nationwide learn Council (NRC) panels, each one of which specializes in the part of the ARL software carried out by means of considered one of ARL's six directorates. whilst asked to take action via ARL, the Board additionally examines paintings that cuts around the directorates. The Board has been acting exams of ARL because 1996. the present file summarizes its discovering for the 2009-2010 interval, within which ninety six volunteer specialists in fields of technological know-how and engineering participated within the following actions: vacationing ARL every year, receiving formal displays of technical paintings, interpreting amenities, conducting technical discussions with ARL employees, and reviewing ARL technical fabrics. The Board remains to be inspired via the general caliber of ARL's technical employees and their paintings and applauds ARL for its transparent, passionate drawback for the tip person of its technology--the soldier within the field--and for ARL's confirmed mindfulness of the significance of transitioning know-how to help quick and longer-term military wishes. ARL employees additionally proceed to extend their involvement with the broader medical and engineering neighborhood. quite often, ARL is operating rather well inside of a suitable examine and improvement (R&D) area of interest and has been demonstrating major accomplishments.

Light from a scene is split into a conventional charge-coupled device camera and a single-pixel sensor, with a point-to-point 2-photon Glauber coherence correlation, to form an image. Performing this correlation is a very heavily computationally-intensive problem. The significance of the work was clear both from the demonstrations provided for the panel and from external validation through both multiple patents and multiple publications in very-high-impact publications with rigorous peer review.

The results here are again mixed. In cases where projects effectively take advantage of ARL’s outstanding test facilities and weave in a feedback path that validates theory and drives more robust algorithm and system development, the results are usually strong, with obvious opportunities for transition. In other cases, where the use of facilities or the feedback of validation results is lacking or weak, effectiveness appeared less than optimal. The long-running issues related to V&V still remain, with the emergence of intelligent experiment design during this review cycle as something that, if improved, might enhance both the quality of results and the efficiency of achieving them.
