Abstract : The Naval Biodynamics Laboratory (NBDL) was established as the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory Detachment (NAMRLD) in April 1971 by the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery. NAMRLD was a detachment of the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory which is located at the Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Florida. The initial purpose of the Detachment was to study human response to impact acceleration. In 1975, the mission was expanded to include human response to vibration, ship motion, and to study human performance. NBDL was designated a separate command by the Secretary of the Navy in February, 1980, and officially established on 28 February 1980. NBDL is under the command of Naval Medical Research and Development Command (NMRDC) and receives primary support from the Chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, Washington, DC.
