Building on six decades of vital contributions to the U.S. Navy’s Fleet Ballistic Missile program, Johns Hopkins APL’s Strategic Deterrence Mission Area is transforming strategic systems from their legacy nuclear mission to a broad set of responses to current and future national security challenges.
We demonstrate expertise in system development, testing, and evaluation for the SSBN mission and are applying that knowledge to the critical, newly expanded roles of strategic systems in our nation’s defense.
Wave Glider DemonstrationFor the first time, we used the commercially developed Wave Glider to demonstrate how quickly the Navy can field new sensor systems.
Ground-Based Strategic DeterrentAPL has a significant evaluation role in the Air Force program to replace the aging Minuteman III system.
Rapid PrototypingWe improved on training aids by rapidly and cost-effectively prototyping an interactive pressurization valve for missile tube launcher training.
