AALArmy Applications Lab


The Army Applications Laboratory was established in 2018, along with the stand-up of the Army Futures Command, to act as a concierge service across the Army’s Future Force Modernization Enterprise and the broader commercial marketplace of ideas. Based on the 8th floor of the Capital Factory in Austin, AAL’s mission is to align innovative solutions and technologies with Army problems, resources and programs to rapidly discover, validate and transition technology applications in support of Army modernization. In other words, AAL exists to connect ideas from a broad range of solvers with the right people and organizations within the Army to close capability gaps and field novel solutions.

AAL is the Army’s proponent for disruptive innovation. If you have a new idea to address one of the Army’s modernization challenges, you can submit it to AAL for consideration and the chance to work together to solve it.
