NRL physicist earns 2020 AAAS Newcomb Cleveland Prize
By By Paul Cage, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory Corporate Communications | March 2, 2021
In 2007, a team of scientists found the first fast radio burst, then described as Lorimer Bursts, after combing through archived data from the Parkes Observatory, in New South Wales, Australia. This extremely energetic burst originated in the Small Magellanic Cloud, about 200,000 light-years away, and was at that time thought of as a one-off event.
Astrophysicist’s 2004 Theory Confirmed: Why the Sun’s Composition Varies
By J. Raynel Koch, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory Corporate Communications | March 2, 2021
About 17 years ago, J. Martin Laming, an astrophysicist at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, theorized why the chemical composition of the Sun’s tenuous outermost layer differs from that lower down.
NRL Supports Security for Biden’s Inauguration with Modeling Capability
By Kevin McAndrews, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory Corporate Communications | Feb. 24, 2021
When seconds matter, speed saves lives. That’s why Adam Moses, a U.S. Naval Research Laboratory computer scientist, deployed a 3D computer-simulated modeling program called Contaminant Transport Analyst, or CT-Analyst, as part of the massive security effort behind the inauguration of President Joe Biden.
New NRL 3D-printed antenna designs reduce cost, weight and size
By Cassandra Eichner, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, Corporate Communications | Feb. 11, 2021
U.S. Naval Research Laboratory experts created and tested 3D-printed antennas and arrays to advance radar technology and enable new applications for the U.S. Navy.
SoloHI Imager Captures Rare Shot of Venus, Earth, Mars, and Uranus
By Paul Cage, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, Corporate Communications | Feb. 9, 2021
The Heliospheric Imager (SoloHI) camera on board ESA/NASA’s Solar Orbiter spacecraft captured four Solar System planets. SoloHI is one of the six remote-sensing instruments that will take images of the solar wind by capturing the light scattered by electrons in the wind.
SAVVi NRL Research Team Receives Science & Technology Cooperation Commendation
By Nicholas Pasquini, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory Corporate Communications | Jan. 29, 2021
An NRL team of experts with the Bio-inspired Adapted Techniques for Sensing, Actuation and Vocalization using Vibro-acoustics (BATSAVVi) program were commended for establishing bilateral collaboration between the U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, and Defence Science and Technology Laboratory.
