> Description:   Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), a research and
> development division of The Johns Hopkins University, supports the
> Department of Defense, NASA and other Government agencies through
> innovative applied research, technical development, and problem
> solving. Located on 365 acres in Laurel, Maryland, the Laboratory
> employs approximately 3,350 engineers, scientists, and supporting
> staff in a broad range of disciplines.
>
> The Applied Physics Laboratory has a 45-year history of innovative
> space science and engineering. Since 1959, APL engineers and
> scientists have designed, built, and launched 61 spacecraft and over
> 150 instruments. We not only helped pioneer quick reaction spacecraft,
> invented many of the techniques now standard in today's spacecraft,
> but also develop entire space systems, such as the Navy Transit
> navigation system. Several important systems conceived and developed
> at APL have been transferred to industry for production. Recently we
> have extended our low-cost planetary mission methodology to such NASA
> missions as NEAR, ACE, MESSENGER and New Horizons. As a not-for-profit
> Research and Development division of the Johns Hopkins University, our
> vision is to advance the knowledge and use of space for the benefit of
