It conducts a broad program of scientific research and development. The NRL has existed since 1923 and was founded on a proposal by Thomas Alva Edison as a department under the Office of Naval Research ( The Government shoulderstand maintain a great research laboratory ....

Many of the projects of the laboratory are public applications after a time without having to take on the origin of note. An example is the so-called onion routing.
A few of the current areas of work include plasma physics, materials science and electronic warfare with a.
