Lorraine Smith has been the coordinator of our annual radiology resident physics review course for as long as I can remember. This course would not be possible without her considerable contribution to its success.

Lorraine is one of the most helpful, resourceful, patient, and pleasant individuals I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Her invaluable assistance with this course, from which this book was developed, is gratefully acknowledged and deeply appreciated.

I would also like to thank our publisher Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, Charley Mitchell, Lisa McAllister, and in particular Ryan Shaw our editor for the opportunity to develop the 3rd edition.

I dedicate this edition to my parents. She cheered my successes, reassured me after my failures, and was an unwavering source of love and support. However, if getting your child to fall asleep is the problem, then any chapter in our book should do the trick. And to you, Julie Rainwater, for adding more than you know to my well-being and happiness. To my family, especially my parents and my grandmother Mrs.

The review of the disruptive energetic material and propulsion technology covered the areas of new material synthesis, small-scale energetic material characterization using laser flyers and rapid heating diagnostics, experimental studies of structural bond energy release nanomaterials, quantum to force field molecular modeling, multiscale coarse-grain modeling of energetic composites, and multiphase rocket and gun propellant modeling.

The ongoing work in this review focused on how ARL continues to lead the Army in its core competencies of blast survivability, ballistic penetration, and protection technologies. These programs, taken together, address this goal in myriad efforts to better understand the physics of failure and utilize this understanding to quantify the effects of threats, develop more lethal threats, and design more resilient strategies to defeat threats.

Flight Guidance, Navigation, and Control Overall, the projects in flight guidance, navigation, and control demonstrated very competent, and in some cases excellent, research. The fundamental problems addressed include maneuverability and terminal guidance to imperfectly located, moving, or protected targets to achieve the operational impact of a deep magazine with precision capability.

Many of the projects would benefit from end-to-end system performance modeling to frame performance requirements and technical and parametric goals.

This observation also applies to the low- cost canard activator discussion. With a systems view of the impact to the overall cost balance, ARL could identify where improvements provide the most leverage in achieving desired performance at an affordable cost.

The ARL flight guidance, navigation, and control research program leads among similar institutions in its focus on Army-relevant problems with the potential for breakthrough operational capability and acceleration. The research team demonstrates exceptional competence in executing a research program focused on incremental advances that could revolutionize Army precision and lethality capability while breaking the cost curve.

Included in this approach are technological advances that support information acquisition, reasoning with such information, and support for decision-making activities such as collaborative communications. Sensing and Effecting Sensing and effecting research projects covered thematic areas of nonimaging sensors acoustic, electric, magnetic, seismic , radar sensing and signal processing, image and video analytics, sensor and data fusion, and machine learning.

Noteworthy programs include electric and magnetic field sensing, research on the next-generation improvised explosive device and landmine detection platform, computational advances in electric field modeling, cross-modal face recognition, and innovative approaches to fuse textual context with image features to improve machine learning.

The work was generally of high scientific quality, with a balance between theoretical and experimental work, as well as evidence of transition into practice. System Intelligence and Intelligent Systems System intelligence and intelligent systems SIIS research spans areas of information understanding, information fusion, and computational intelligence.

This research has led to an improved understanding of complex environments and streaming data related to navigation, exploration, and mapping of the physical world. The work on unsupervised learning of semantic labels in streaming data, and the synergies between visual analysis and efficient exploration of environments is noteworthy.

Ongoing collaboration among researchers within ARL as well as on the outside on information analysis in SIIS to decision support in human-information interaction , is likely to yield good dividends.

Human-Information Interaction Human-information interaction HII is a new program in the Information Sciences Campaign and has been in operation since , bringing together researchers from disparate disciplines and technical backgrounds.

The objective of HII research at ARL is to develop models, methods, and understanding of data and information generated by humans and intelligent agents in a complex, multigenre network environment.

Atmospheric Sciences The atmospheric sciences research portfolio of the Battlefield Environments Division seeks to improve environmental understanding of the planetary boundary layer PBL and processes that operate on small spatial and temporal scales, and on developing appropriate environmental intelligence tools for deployed soldiers to use in austere, complex operating environments.

Promising research projects reviewed included detection and characterization of chemical aerosols, acoustic and infrasound sensing, development and fielding of a meteorological sensor array at White Sands Missile Range WSMR , and advances in small-scale atmospheric model development, verification, and validation.

Networks and Communications The networks and communications research portfolio focuses on understanding and exploiting interactions of information with sociotechnical networks, particularly communications, and command and control networks. The research comprises three broad topical areas: channels and protocols, control and behavior, and information delivery. Human-machine teaming is a growing topic in all three topical areas. Since the previous review in , significant progress has been made in many of these areas of research.

Cybersecurity: Detection and Agility Cyberattackers, both human and intelligent agents, pose a significant threat to Army information systems and networks. Understanding how adversarial elements interact with information is important, as is the analysis and understanding of adversary resources, learning and recognizing adversary tactics, and ultimately anticipating adversarial activity to mitigate the effects of cyberattacks.

Risk characterization is another important element of cybersecurity research. The overall quality of research was good, with some projects characterized as excellent. Substantial progress has been made in each of the three areas since the last review in Looking forward, the campaign would benefit from three activities designed to focus effort and ensure success.

By creating and sharing white papers on the state of the art, the campaign could identify national thought leaders whose research, insights, and ideas would inform and guide research and development. Second, the campaign could convert conceptual diagrams of future battlefields to tangible work plans, emphasizing those focused activities likely to maximize return on investment.

Third, all projects would benefit from clearer metrics for project success and associated project exit strategies, including transitions that maximize Army benefits. To serve the long-term Army needs for quantum secure communication and networking, ARL has also been exploring the potential range of uses of quantum computing and networking through modeling and simulation. Data-Intensive Sciences This campaign has focused on applied machine learning ML , neuromorphic computing, and cooperative multiagent control using deep reinforcement learning.

In addition to software testing and evaluation for the IBM TrueNorth processor, in a collaborative partnership with Stanford University, the campaign extended the multiagent-setting methods previously used to train a single agent using cooperative reinforcement learning, achieving state-of-the-art performance in several applications.

In addition, the campaign has addressed several Army-relevant ML needs, including planetary gearbox analysis as a proactive approach to preventative maintenance by automated generation of features. Three data-intensive computing projects high-throughput electrolyte modeling, discovering and quantifying atomistic defects in large data sets for assessing nanocrystalline aluminum, and computational technologies for the reduction of highly nonlinear and multiscale solid mechanics and structural dynamics models are exploiting the same ARL-developed software architecture for distributed simulation.

Two notable examples of such work were a computational framework for scale bridging with application to multiscale modeling of RDX explosives, and models for integrated computational materials engineering for polycrystalline materials.

Interactions with ARL scientists and engineers, including research presentations, posters, and laboratory visits, were useful in terms of assessing the quality of ARL research. Several outstanding research projects are noteworthy. The project on stimuli-responsive interface mechanics for nanocomposites focused on improving damping by modifying the polymer-fiber interface and using stimuli-responsive photoreactive molecules for functionalizing the carbon nanotubes.

Theoretical concepts for controlling system dynamics by using a linear state space model were elegantly explained in the project on Gramian-based control of unmanned aircraft system UAS disturbances. The project on energy-efficient multimodal flight is focused on designing and testing a tiltrotor vehicle weighing less than g.

The project principally addresses the dynamics and control of the system and has successfully achieved the transition from hover to forward flight.
