and lethality areas are among the best anywhere. WMRD is not the best in everything it does, but its integrated interior, exterior, and terminal ballistics, lethality, materials, experimental, computational modeling, and systems analysis capabilities are very impressive and considered to be among the best worldwide. WMRD continues to conduct high-quality armament-related research that is leading to new weapon system concepts and products offering advanced capabilities that make a significant difference to soldiers.

The quality of WMRD’s lethality research also is impressive. The lethality mission is very important to the Army, and WMRD continues to conduct lethality-related research that is leading to weapon system concepts and products that can make a significant difference to the soldiers. WMRD has a good understanding of the Army needs in this area. WMRD has streamlined and focused its core lethality technology to make it more consistent with the Army’s current “squad centric” focus aimed at increasing the combat effectiveness of small units. WMRD’s solid lethality technology program will be able to deliver new understanding and many new products to the Army over the coming years. WMRD is doing an excellent job.
