United States Naval Research Laboratory

The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory ( NRL) is the joint research laboratory for the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps. 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 .... In this could be developed ... all the technique of military and naval progression without any vast expense. ).

The achievements of the NRL cover a wide area. It goes beyond the development of the X-ray to gamma rays up to the Large Angle and Spectrometric Coronagraph Experiment ( LASCO ) and Dragon Eye (an aircraft sensor system ). The laboratory in 1939 created a nuclear submarine and was developed in the later 1950s about a horizontal radar system. Recently, also the details of grave I, one of the first reconnaissance satellites released.

Two employees of the NRL, Herbert A. Hauptman and Jerome Karle, were honored in 1985 for her work in molecular structure analysis with the Nobel Prize for Chemistry.

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.
