Has this been reviewed by the ARL Office of Chief Counsel?  I know the
army has an intellectual property counsel as part of the JAG/USALSA out at
Ft. Belvoir.

You also have a tech transfer office at ARL that handles Patent License
Agreements for ARL under 15 USC 3710a who would probably want to have
input on any ARL open source agreement that includes patent grants.

There are likely a lot of regulations and policy (DoD and Army) you need
to be aware of before attempting to submit an ARL branded open source
license.  ARL may or may not be able to do so without permission from
RDECOMŠwho may elect to punt the issue up to JALS-IP as the IP issue you
are trying to solve does not appear to be trivial and is a USG/DoD/Army
wide issue.
