Welcome to the ARL DSRC

The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) has a deep, ingrained heritage of supporting U.S. warfighters. Our drive to creatively overcome obstacles and break new ground continues traditions started before World War II. Since 1943, the ARL (then known as the Ballistic Research Laboratory or BRL) has been at the vanguard of modern computing. Using the Bush Differential Analyzer, programmable calculators, and sheer brute force, the BRL provided ballistic calculations and firing tables that were vital to the Allied victory in World War II. In fact, the BRL at the Army's Aberdeen Proving Ground facility became the first permanent installation of what was fast becoming a strategic asset for battlefield computations and weapons development.

In collaboration with the DoD High performance Computing Program, ARL hosted a Supercomputing Summer Institute on July 20 -31, 2015. The Institute was a two-week academic program that introduced students to supercomputing architectures, applications and tools; basic principles of engineering algorithms; programming languages and techniques; and networking technologies. Additionally, this program showed the fifteen participating students ranging in ages from 13 - 17 students how ARL solves science problems using High Performance Computing.

A Capstone Projects Presentation and Awards Ceremony was held on July 31, 2015 to recognize the student's' accomplishments.
