HRL Employees’ Experience Touches Down on Mars

Before they were at HRL Laboratories, staff member Kayleigh Porter and intern Victor Ardulov worked on technologies for NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover that is currently exploring the surface of Mars. Porter 3D-printed ceramic parts for Curiosity’s SAM suite of tools and Ardulov was an undergrad intern at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory working on a virtual reality tool for mission planning.


Aligning Nanoparticles to Create Dense Materials

HRL Laboratories has successfully demonstrated a scalable, water-based nanoassembly manufacturing technique with many possible uses, including growing powerful rare-earth-free magnets and infrared optical materials. The new method is a bench-top task and is scalable to industrial manufacturing volumes.


A Step Toward Revolutionary Computing by Improving Topological Material

HRL Laboratories, LLC, hopes to advance the vast potential of two-dimensional topological materials for quantum computation. With an award from DARPA, this project—Suppressing Trivial Edge Conductance in 2D Topological Materials—will take a step closer to development of topological qubits that keep fragile quantum information safe from environmental effects.



The ExACT Tools for Safe Autonomy

HRL Laboratories, LLC, will join the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) in its Autonomy Assurance (AA) program with the Expressive Assurance Case Toolkit (ExACT), a set of algorithmic tools that will mathematically verify that the autonomous driving system’s algorithms are correct and safe.




HRL Laboratories Named 2018 Edison Awards Finalist in 3D Printing Category

HRL Laboratories, LLC, has been named a finalist in the Applied Technology/3D Printing category of the 2018 Edison Awards for their work in microstructure control of materials. Gold, silver, and bronze award winners will be announced at the 31st Annual Edison Awards Gala held Wednesday April 11, 2018 in New York City.


Making DREaM Come True for DARPA

HRL Laboratories, LLC, has received an award from the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) to develop the next generation of gallium nitride (GaN) transistors with dramatically improved linearity and noise figure at reduced power consumption for use in electronic devices that manage the electromagnetic spectrum from radio communications to radar.
