Army Research: Technical Implementation Plan 2016 – 2020

“To address the S&T-driven imperatives mandated by the deep future Army’s complex operational environment and its core competencies, ARL has structured 26 Key Campaign Initiatives (KCIs) – substantive, long-lived, primarily in-house technical programs focused on pursuing scientific discoveries, innovations, and knowledge product transitions that are expected to lead to greatly enhanced capabilities for the operational Army of 2040. In addition, the laboratory’s technical portfolio is constituted by 37 Core Campaign Enablers (CCEs) – enduring technical thrusts dedicated to gaining fundamental understanding of new concepts and maturing foundational technologies and methodologies to enable a broad array of technical programs. ARL’s technical portfolio – defined in the ARL Technical Strategy and ARL S&T Campaign Plans – is composed of approximately 50% KCIs and approximately 50% CCEs.” [from executive summary]
