SEAP is an eight-week summer program for high school students. The SEAP is designed to engage high school students in hands-on activities and student/mentor relationships that encourage careers in science and engineering. This program builds upon the foundations from prior years of laboratory experience reinforcing the idea that taking advanced classes now will provide opportunities for college. It allows students to apprentice in fields of their choice with experienced scientists and engineers. SEAP provides students with valuable knowledge and skills needed to make informed career decisions. At ARL, students apprentice in a professional environment and learn how their work can benefit the Army as well as the civilian community.

The UNITE program provides high school students with the opportunity to participate in college-structured summer courses that feature hands-on applications, participation in lectures, problem solving techniques, and tours of private and governmental laboratory and engineering facilities. Students receive classroom instruction in courses such as chemistry, physics, algebra, and calculus. They are introduced to math and science applications and how these applications are applied to real-world situations. The students are also shown how these applications are related to careers in engineering and technology. The UNITE program is designed to support socially and economically disadvantaged high school students.

This high school initiative places particular emphasis on students from historically under-represented groups, and motivates students toward a career in science, mathematics, or technology by providing them with challenging science experiences that are not readily available in high school. Students have hands-on experience during the summer months in an actual research environment at a local university with research investigators. The number of universities and internships available varies based on funding. On average, 100 students are placed in apprenticeships through REAP each year.

How ARL Technology Lead to a More Efficient Cell Phone

Paratek Microwave, established in March 1998, successfully licensed patents from the Army Research Laboratory with the goal to commercialize electronically tunable components and subsystems developed on the basis of the low loss, tunable family of dielectric materials. The outcome of this licensing effort was the formation of a family of patents developed by Paratek Microwave that led to the development of tunable components like filters, oscillators, delay lines, phase shifters, and electronically scanning and tunable antennas. The addressable markets were for US defense applications and the commercial broadband wireless including mobile phones. Paratek was acquired by Blackberry to incorporate Paratek's tunable technology into their mobile phones.

The technology is a mainstream solution to multiple frequency bands and antenna performance in today's smartphones.
