The Aerobalistic Range Association (ARA) is a not for profit organization for facilities engaged in research and development using guns and related launchers.

Purpose[edit]

The organization was formed to share information about facility design, instrumentation development and range operations. The organization holds a yearly meeting, usually at a location near an active test facility. Members are encouraged to present at least one technical paper per meeting.[1]

Student Outreach[edit]

The ARA has recently developed a student outreach program aimed at promoting ballistic research in the early stages of career development. A student research paper contest has been established which provides cash stipends (currently $1,000.) for winners plus invitations for winners to attend ARA meetings to present their papers.
