Measuring human behavior

The Target Behavioral Response Laboratory conducts tests to study how humans react to various devices and how they can be made more effective.

PICATINNY ARSENAL, N.J. — Along the winding Snake Hill road in the Picatinny Arsenal 3500 area sits the Target Behavioral Response Laboratory, which is responsible for providing answers to what engineers developing products seek most.

“What happens if… ? Under these conditions, how will people react?”

The Target Behavioral Response Laboratory, or TBRL provides non-invasive, behavioral human research experiments with devices that are non-lethal, less-than-lethal, or enhance lethality. Essentially, researchers study the effects of products on live test subjects: people.
