Our mission is to enhance controlled research opportunities for MSU researchers, students, and regional businesses that support national security priorities.


We support the land-grant mission by creating inclusivity in national security research for MSU faculty, staff, and students. The ARL facilitates new opportunities for MSU researchers to transform learning into practical application. The controlled research conducted at the ARL will serve as a conduit through which MSU will enhance engagement with government, industry, and entrepreneurial research partners and contribute to the security of Montana and the nation.
