US Army International Technology Center - Atlantic

ABOUT US -

The U.S. Army Research & Development Standardization Group - United Kingdom (USARDSG – UK) was established in 1948 to continue the close military cooperation with European nations that developed during World War II and in the period immediately following the war. Over the following decades USARDSG-UK continued to evolve in title and mission focus. USARDSG-UK was supplemented by the U.S. Army European Research Office (ERO), which was initially established in Frankfurt, Germany. The primary objective of the ERO was to focus on basic science and research in areas of interest to the U.S. Army and to form collaborative relationships with European scientists and academicians in order to advance scientific and technical efforts. The ERO was later moved to London, UK, in order to co-locate research and development offices of the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force.

The USARDSG-UK was merged with ERO under the direction of the U.S. Army Material Command and aligned within the U.S. Army Research Laboratory. Mission focus for this new organization was expanded from basic research to include investigation and cooperation in the field of applied research. Subsequent further realignment at the turn of the century within the Army Material Command resulted in the formation of the U.S. Army International Technology Center – Atlantic (USAITCA) as the overseas office of the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command with a broad mission focus covering fundamental science research to fully developed technologies.

The U.S. Army International Technology Center – Atlantic continues its outreach to the scientific community by facilitating the exchange of dialog between European Scientists and technical experts with their counterparts in the laboratories and R& D centers of the U.S. Army. The USAITC-Atlantic promotes fundamental research by partnering with European scientists and R & D organizations via grants and sponsorships for qualifying research projects and workshops.
