04/17/12 White House: Office of Science and Technology—Today, at a ceremony with OSTP Director John P. Holdren, the Naval Research Laboratory opened the Laboratory for Autonomous Systems Research (LASR), a new facility located at the NRL’s main site in Washington, D.C. NRL has served the Navy and the Nation for almost 90 years, and is responsible for scientific and technological breakthroughs such as GPS, deep ocean searches, radar, and systems for the identification of “friend or foe.” LASR will support cutting-edge research in robotics and autonomous systems of interest to the Navy, the Marine Corps, and the Department of Defense, such…
10/05/09 Naval Research Laboratory research could find application for undersea communications, navigation, and acoustic imaging, including use in unmanned underwater systems. Scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory are developing a new technology for use in underwater acoustics. The new technology uses flashes of laser light to remotely create underwater sound. The new acoustic source has the potential to expand and improve both Naval and commercial underwater acoustic applications, including undersea communications, navigation, and acoustic imaging. Dr. Ted Jones, a physicist in the Plasma Physics Division, is leading a team of researchers from the Plasma Physics, Acoustics, and Marine Geosciences Divisions in…
