Counter UAS and Counter-proliferation

The Advanced Concepts Laboratory’s counter-proliferation efforts focus on technical challenges ranging from advanced warfighting concepts (including maneuver drone warfare and multi-domain battle) to the challenges posed by the existential threats of weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological, nuclear and radiological weapons) and other asymmetric threats. ACL is committed to solving problems such as WMD pathway defeat, countering unmanned aircraft systems, countering improvised threats, applying technology to improve warfighter capabilities, and mitigating other technology-driven emerging threats. ACL leverages a strong mix of technology-focused researchers coupled with researchers who have significant operational warfighting experience. This unique blend of skillsets positions us to bring meaningful value to some of the nation’s most pressing problems.
