Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) is a not-for-profit center for engineering, research and development. APL's 399-acre campus, 20 miles north of Washington, D.C., in Laurel, Maryland, is home to 4,300 men and women. Almost 70% are engineers and scientists who work on more than 400 programs that protect our homeland and advance the nation's vision in research and space science, at an annual funding level of about $680 million.
The Laboratory has been a major asset to the nation since it was organized to help the war effort in 1942, four months after Pearl Harbor. We're proud of our heritage from those early days and the can-do attitude and spirit of dedication to the nation's welfare that is still a major element of our culture.
