As a university affiliated research center (UARC), Johns Hopkins APL maintains robust engineering and research and development expertise in eight core competencies to meet the needs of our government sponsors.

APL’s core competencies are:

  • Strategic systems test and evaluation
  • Submarine security and survivability
  • Space science and engineering
  • Combat systems and guided missiles
  • Theater air defense and power projection
  • Information technology (C4ISR/IO)
  • Simulation, modeling, and operations analysis
  • Mission-related research and development

The Laboratory develops future technologies and capabilities that serve national priorities and expand the frontiers of science. We provide U.S. government agencies with specialized technical expertise to support national priorities and technology development programs. And we serve as independent trusted technical agents, providing continuity for highly complex, multigenerational government-funded technology systems.
