Excerpt: A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification. This program element fosters fundamental scientific knowledge and contributes to the sustainment of U.S. Army scientific and technological superiority in land war fighting capability, provides new concepts and technologies for the Army’s Future Force, and provides the means to exploit scientific breakthroughs and avoid technological surprises. It fosters innovation in Army niche areas (such as lightweight armor, energetic materials, night vision) and where the commercial incentive to invest is lacking due to limited markets (e.g., vaccines for tropical diseases). It also focuses university single investigators on research areas of Army interest, such as high-density compact power and novel sensor phenomenologies. The in-house portion of the program capitalizes on the Army’s scientific talent and specialized facilities to expeditiously transition knowledge and technology into the appropriate developmental activities. The extramural program leverages the research efforts of other government agencies, academia, and industry. This translates to a coherent, well-integrated program which is executed by the four primary contributors ... 1. the Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM); 2. the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC); 3. the Army Medical Research and Materiel Command laboratories; and 4. the Army Research Institute for Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI). The basic research program is coordinated with the other Services via the Joint Directors of Laboratories panels, the Defense Basic Research Technology Area Review and Assessment (TARA) process and other inter-service working groups. This program responds to the scientific and technological requirements of the Department of Defense Basic Research Plan by enabling the technologies that can significantly improve joint war fighting capabilities. The projects in this Program Element involve basic research efforts directed toward providing fundamental knowledge for the solution of military problems related to long-term national security needs. The cited work is consistent with strategic planning Guidance, the Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP), the Army Modernization Plan, and the D.O.D. Basic Research Plan (BRP). Work in this PE is managed by: the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL); the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC); the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Center (NSC), the Medical Research and Materiel Command (MRMC), the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), and the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI).
