Naval Research Lab team aims to design better armor through nanoscience - News

April 27, 2018
WASHINGTON. A multidisciplinary team of researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) reports that they have pushed grain-size engineering to the limit and as a result recently discovered previously unseen behaviors in nanocrystalline ceramics that could lead to the design of lighter and stronger ceramic armor for the warfighter. The discovery -- recently published in American Chemical Society Nano -- continues NRL research published in 2014.

Navy research into phase change may pave way for better battlefield chemical sensors - News

July 25, 2017
WASHINGTON. An interdisciplinary team of scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have demonstrated that monolayer 2-D Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDs) ? which are atomically thin semiconductors ? undergo a change from semiconductor-to-metallic phase when exposed to airborne chemical vapors.

Nitride research may lead to new microelectronic technology and devices - News

June 12, 2017
WASHINGTON. A group of scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Lab (NRL) has continued to push forward with research regarding gallium nitride (GaN) technology for radio-frequency (RF) wireless technology and recently made an breakthrough in the ability to grow thin films of a transition metal nitride called niobium nitride (Nb2N).

Naval Research Lab testing use of solar photovoltaics in groups of UAVs - News

May 18, 2017
WASHINGTON. Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Vehicle Research Section and Photovoltaic Section are making progress on their investigations into the presence of solar photovoltaics (PV) to the proven concept of autonomous cooperative soaring of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). These cooperative autonomous soaring techniques will enable long-endurance flights of unmanned solar-powered sailplanes that can support a 24/7 information, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) mission.

WASHINGTON. The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) reports that the International Space Station (ISS) has successfully installed NRL?s Limb-Imaging Ionospheric and Thermospheric Extreme Ultraviolet (UV) Spectrograph (LITES) and its Global Positioning System (GPS) Radio Occultation and Ultraviolet Photometer Co-located (GROUP-C) research instruments.

Field repairable & transparent armor developed by Naval Research Laboratory - News

March 08, 2017
WASHINGTON. U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) research chemists developed and patented a transparent thermoplastic elastomer armor to reduce weight, inherent in most bullet-resistant glass, while maintaining ballistic properties.

Naval Research Laboratory's battle manager technology completes simulated air combat trials - News

February 23, 2017
WASHINGTON. U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) researchers at the Navy Center for Applied Research in Artificial Intelligence (NCARAI) teamed up with Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to continue work on the NRL-developed Tactical Battle Manager (TBM) with the end-goal to have an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) be left to recognize when or how to change its goal objective if the mission requires it.
