Optical R&D at the Army Research Laboratory

Tyler Krupa

As clearly evidenced during the 1991Gulf War, optical technologies are playing a significant role in modern-day US Army operations. Night vision devices, missile guidance systems, and target detection are just a few of the optical applications that have proven capable of increasing military efficiency and decreasing the number of casualties. Since such a large part of the Army’s success now depends on sophisticated systems and weaponry, active research and development (R&D) in cutting-edge optical technology has become a priority.
