Abstract:

The Naval Research Laboratory is one of the principal in-house research and development institutions of the U.S. Government. It was established in 1923 to ensure that advancements in science and engineering could be readily applied to the Navys needs. Directed always toward this end, the NRL research program has developed to its present status as a broadly based and coordinated effort in the physical, mathematical, and environmental sciences, in advanced engineering, and in naval analysis. The work of the Laboratory is conducted at the main establishment in the District of Columbia and at various field sites that provide unique environment and facilities not available at the main site.
