Icon The Cover: APL’s contributions in military and space communications systems design have historically been areas of major innovations. APL-developed communications systems have found applications in DoD and NASA programs, enabling major advancements in higher data rate and assured communications. An emerging developmental effort in optical and VHF (terahertz) communications systems may have future application in such areas as intersatellite communications. (Cover design by Kenneth R. Moscati.)
