Three visitors from Army Research Lab will speak to CRISP members about the research priorities of the Advanced Computing Branch of ARL. The visitors are Dr. Noah Weston, Dr. Manuel Vindiola, and Mr. Jared Willard all from the Advanced Computing Branch of ARL. Dr. Vindiola is the Point of Contact for the ARL BAA topic of "Real-Time, Scalable Data Analytics for the Army" that is in effect till Mar 2022.

Title: Research Activities in the Army Research Lab - Advanced Computing Branch

Abstract: In order to realize the Army’s vision of deploying teams of advanced autonomous systems at scale on the battlefield, the Army must research, engineer, and develop a holistic approach to the tactical system of systems architecture, including efficient compute capabilities, optimized computational algorithms, and communications methodologies. The mission of the Advanced Computing Branch (ACB) is to conduct fundamental and applied research in areas related to novel and heterogeneous and distributed computing architectures; and computationally optimized algorithms for special-purpose and adaptive compute capabilities. This talk will highlight the breadth of research ongoing in the ACB and highlight some specific areas of interest to the research community.

Bio: Noah Weston is Chief of the Advanced Computing Branch in the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, Army Research Lab. His work focuses on the Army’s command, control and communications capabilities in tactically deployed system of systems. His background includes over 15 years of experience in the Army’s Future Force Modernization Enterprise. His recent research includes optimization of the Army’s tactical sensor architecture, including network design, compute allocation, and communication software design.
