Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center
Definition/Scope: The U. S. Army Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC), a subordinate laboratory to the Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM), is the Army's focal point for providing research, development, and engineering technology and services for aviation and missile platforms across the lifecycle. AMRDEC provides a wide array of technologies, hardware and software applications, and products and services that run the gamut from game-changing technologies to detect and destroy threats, enhance performance, lethality, survivability and reliability of aviation and missile systems, along with programs to miniaturize missile and aircraft components, provide modeling and simulation applications for these technologies and systems, and the associated training applications. Also, AMRDEC serves as the Department of Defense (DoD) lead for Rotorcraft Science and Technology (S&T) and the DoD lead for Gel Propellants. In addition, AMRDEC has one of the few Capability Maturity Model (CMM) Level 4 software engineering facilities in the Army, certified by the world-renowned Software Engineering Institute (SEI).
