The mission of the ARO is to seed scientifically sound and technologically important efforts which will enhance Army capabilities. Results of prior research activities have led to major changes in Army operations. The development of the laser provided a completely new capability to precisely measure the range to the target, and to designate targets. The Army's capability to fight at night was a direct result of scientific studies dealing with semiconductor materials and photoelectronic phenomena for image intensification.
