Vehicle Technology Summer Experience
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 1/7/2019

Opportunity Description

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory's Vehicle Technology Directorate (VTD) is the principal Army organization responsible for the pursuit of mobility-related science and technologies leading to advanced capabilities and improved reliability for Army air and ground vehicles. VTD leads the ARL Sciences for Maneuver Campaign that focuses on gaining a greater fundamental understanding of advanced mobility technologies that enable innovative vehicles configurations and subsystem architectures - critical to the future Army's movement, sustainment, and maneuverability. The technology focus areas within the ARL and RDECOM programs have been defined as platform, propulsion, intelligent systems and logistics. The VTD mission is accomplished through in-house basic and applied research, and from collaborations with other ARL functions, RDECOM, Navy, Air Force, academia and industry leaders. The mission is enhanced through teaming with and leveraging of research efforts associated with Collaborative Technology Alliances (CTAs) and Multidisciplinary University Research Initiatives (MURIs). For example, VTD is actively involved with two CTAs (Robotics and Micro Autonomous System Technologies), several cooperative agreements, and a unique partnership with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) at the Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA and the Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, OH. Summer Student Experience opportunities exist in the following areas of research: intelligent systems, propulsion technology, mechanics and structures, integrated analysis, and quantitative technology Assessments. U.S. Citizenship is not required to be considered for as Summer Student Experience Fellow with VTD, but non-U.S. Citizens are strongly encouraged to apply early to allow additional processing time for the ORAU immigration office and ARL security.
