Description: Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), a research and development division of The Johns Hopkins University, supports the Department of Defense, NASA and other Government agencies through innovative applied research, technical development, and problem solving. APL has a 45-year history of innovative space science and engineering. Since 1959, APL engineers and scientist have designed, built, and launched 62 spacecraft and over 150 instruments. The Applied Physics Lab helped pioneer quick reaction spacecraft, invented many of the techniques now standard in today's spacecraft, and developed entire space systems, such as the Navy Transit navigation system. Several important systems conceived and developed at APL have been transferred to industry for production.  Recently it has extended its low-cost planetary mission methodology to such NASA missions as NEAR, ACE, MESSENGER and New Horizons.  The APL campus is located 20 miles north of Washington, DC in Laurel, MD. Students with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation services.
