U.S. Army Research Lab collaborates with University of Southern California
The U.S. Army Research Laboratory and the University of Southern California cut a ribbon, April 13th, to signify the
opening of a new collaborative research facility at USC’s Institute for Creative
Technologies. It’s called ARL west and leadership anticipates that establishing a West Coast research team at USC will lead to a new research direction, new
perspectives, new industry partners, and ultimately new discoveries that will help
the Army solve current and future challenges. DR. THOMAS RUSSELL: “I’m excited about what is the possibilities that much is not known and I’m excited about today, that we are opening a facility dedicated to the art of the possible. Where the next ahha moment could happen that would give us a leading edge or game changing discovery in innovation that will change the way we think about national security and
mankind forever.” “This can’t happen anymore. You know that right?” “He’s not exactly the easiest guy to get along with.” The initial focus on ARL West is in the area of Human information Interaction which involves research into how humans generate and interact with data to make decisions more effectively and efficiently. MG JOHN WHORTON: “ARL West becomes an open campus member. It becomes the newest component in a global S&T system. The innovations, technologies, and capabilities that you’ll develop here will help us, not only for current, real-world operations but through 2040 and beyond.” ARL West will capitalize on the West Coast culture of innovation by bringing scientists and engineers together in this important research hub.
