    The study also recommends how power companies and government agencies can craft emergency orders to sustain electric service to vital military bases, regional hospitals, and other critical facilities that an adversary may seek to cripple.

  • Parker Solar Probe--designed, built and managed by APL--launched last week. The historic mission is on its way to our Sun's blazing solar atmosphere, making its closest approach at 3.8 million miles. Parker will reach speeds of roughly 430,000 miles per hour, setting the record for the fastest-moving object made by humanity.

    Parker Solar Probe

    Parker Solar Probe will swoop to within 4 million miles of the sun's surface, facing heat and radiation like no spacecraft before it. Launching in 2018, Parker Solar Probe will provide new data on solar activity and make critical contributions to our ability to forecast major space-weather events that impact life on Earth.

  • APL was ranked one of the top 100 companies for IT professionals! According to Computerworld's 2018 Best Places to Work in IT, "stellar benefits, challenging projects and plenty of opportunities for growth" are the things IT employees are most enthusiastic about at companies like APL.
