Army Research Office

The U.S. Army Research Office (ARO) mission is to seed scientific and far reaching technological discoveries that enhance Army capabilities. Basic research proposals from educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, and private industry are competitively selected and funded. ARO's research mission represents the most long-range Army view for changes in its technology and is the only Army organization that transcends all of its mission areas.

what drives army research the army vision
What Drives Army Research?The Army Vision

“Heavy forces must be more strategically deployableand more agile with a smaller logistical footprint, and light forces must be more lethal, survivableand tactically mobile. Achieving this paradigm will require innovative thinking about structure, modernization efforts and spending.” CSA, 23 June 1999

“The S&T community is the key to the long term transformation of the Army” - - CSA’s HASC testimony
