This issue highlights the diversity of APL's contributions to national and global challenges. The issue begins by evaluating the dynamical characteristics of a floating capsule on the Titan sea surface. The second article describes discovery research to identify a repeatable approach for making an early suitability assessment of community cloud environments for DoD missions. The third article describes efforts to support instructors teaching topics related to irregular warfare. The final article discusses technology developments and field demonstrations of laser communications systems. The issue concludes with two Special Features, one that describes this year's Technical Achievement Award winners and one that offers a glimpse of Central Spark, one of APL's innovation initiatives.
