Rapid Fielding of Capability to the Fleet
Volume 33, Number 4 (2017)

APL's Force Projection Sector has focused this issue of the Johns Hopkins APL Technical Digest on rapid fielding of capability to the Fleet. The articles in this issue represent all three of the sector's mission areas—Strategic Deterrence, Sea Control, and Precision Strike—and give some insight into the breadth and depth of the work we do to put capabilities in the hands of the warfighter, ranging from developing analysis and training tools to deploying prototype systems on Navy platforms. Also included are two Special Features highlighting other important work being done at the Lab.
