The cost of the military learn Laboratory Technical evaluation Board (ARLTAB) is to supply biannual checks of the medical and technical caliber of the study, improvement, and research courses on the military study Laboratory (ARL). the recommendation supplied during this record makes a speciality of technical instead of programmatic concerns. The Board is assisted by way of six nationwide examine Council (NRC) panels, every one of which specializes in the part of the ARL software performed by way of considered one of ARL's six directorates. while asked to take action by way of ARL, the Board additionally examines paintings that cuts around the directorates. The Board has been appearing tests of ARL in view that 1996. the present record summarizes its discovering for the 2009-2010 interval, within which ninety six volunteer specialists in fields of technology and engineering participated within the following actions: vacationing ARL each year, receiving formal shows of technical paintings, reading amenities, accomplishing technical discussions with ARL employees, and reviewing ARL technical fabrics. The Board remains to be inspired via the final caliber of ARL's technical employees and their paintings and applauds ARL for its transparent, passionate trouble for the top consumer of its technology--the soldier within the field--and for ARL's established mindfulness of the significance of transitioning know-how to help speedy and longer-term military wishes. ARL employees additionally proceed to extend their involvement with the broader medical and engineering group. quite often, ARL is operating rather well inside a suitable examine and improvement (R&D) area of interest and has been demonstrating major accomplishments.

New capabilities such as swarming and electronic warfare (jamming) will also clearly involve not only CISD but will also interact with SEDD in the development of new sensors compatible with limited resources, and with the Vehicle Technology Directorate (VTD) when computing can simplify platforms. • P  ower: Energy consumption has become a first-class design constraint on almost all Army platforms, especially as more and more functionality is done with computing. • P  rognostics and diagnostics (platform-based fault detection and reconfiguration): The increase in platform complexity and the increasingly rapid schedule of introduction, deployment, and retirement mean that the average soldier who must deal with complex equipment barely has time to learn to use a new system, let alone to become expert enough to be able to repair or reconfigure it.

The problem posed was clearly a difficult one, but it suffered from an assumption that a map existed at the beginning and from questions about radio-frequency propagation and map construction, especially in the three-dimensional environment represented by a building. Also, one would expect that topologies that represent richer than a minimum connectivity would be more valuable in a warfighting environment where intermediate relays may be destroyed or go off-line. A related project involves indoor navigation in a Global Positioning System-denied environment using a combination of out-of-building sensors and dead reckoning based on a simple inertial navigation unit tied to a soldier’s foot.

There are research areas such as machine translation in which a V&V mind-set has become central to the research process, and others with apparently little such focus. In still others, particularly projects involving complex computations, there continues to be a tendency to develop stand-alone codes, without any clear approach articulated as to how to ensure that both the algorithm modeling the physics and the implementation of that algorithm are correct. A tendency to believe the machine is evident, and it needs to be avoided by formal verification.
