For decades USAARL has provided aeromedical research support to all Army aviation and airborne activities. However, as Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom began, our research focus shifted to sustaining Warfighter performance. Due to the cessation of war times, we must now re-focus on our aeromedical roots to mitigate and prevent injuries for not only our Soldiers, but also our Aviators. To this end, we must market our assets, capabilities, and research outcomes to establish new and productive research, development, test, and evaluation partnerships with other military organizations, industry, and academia.
We must create optimal operational capabilities by efficiently managing our talent, valuing our staff members, and developing strong leaders to create a productive workforce, an enriching work environment, and an enduring leadership culture. We will be recognized as the Army’s focal point for research and expert consultation on biomedical, physiological, and psychological issues affecting our Aviators and Soldiers. Achieving our initiatives requires us to persistently focus on our vision and dependably accomplish our mission. About our Commander
