Podcast: Supercomputing and Sensors at ARL

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In this podcast from the Army Research Laboratory, lab director Dr. Phil Perconti and computer scientist Ross Adelman discuss future of supercomputing and sensors.

Imagine having a complete understanding of what’s inside a building without having to step inside. That’s the kind of thing that scientists and engineers at the U.S. Army CCDC Research Laboratory are working on using research into low-frequency imaging sensors and supercomputers.

In this new podcast series, Dr. Philip Perconti, director of the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s Army Research Laboratory, interviews scientists and engineers and discusses the cutting edge of lab’s foundational research.

The Army Research Laboratory is responsible for thinking about technology beyond 2035, he said. “What research has to be done to affect disruptive warfighting capability in the long term? That’s the primary mission of the Army Research Laboratory.”

The What We Learned Today podcast features a different area of research in each episode described by an up-and-coming Army researcher. In the first few episodes, Perconti tackles topics like synthetic biology, future fuels and innovative robotics.

This is a collaborative environment,” Perconti said. “In order to collaborate, you need to know where people are coming from. What they think is important. Getting together with people and communicating on as many different levels as possible is the intent here.”

“We can use this to reach a wide audience; this is just one avenue for that,” Perconti said. “That’s our intent…to make sure people understand our mission and the problems we’re trying to solve.”
