HRL Demonstrates the Potential to Enhance the Human Intellect’s Existing Capacity to Learn New Skills

Dr. Matthew Phillips and his team of investigators from HRL’s Information & System Sciences Laboratory used transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in order to improve learning and skill retention. “We measured the brain activity patterns of six commercial and military pilots, and then transmitted these patterns into novice subjects as they learned to pilot an airplane in a realistic flight simulator,” he says.


HRL Laboratories’ breakthrough may pave the way for Gallium Nitride to supplant Silicon in Integrated Circuits

Researchers at HRL Laboratories, LLC, have achieved the first demonstration of gallium nitride (GaN) complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) field-effect-transistor (FET) technology, and in doing so have established that the semiconductor’s superior transistor performance can be harnessed in an integrated circuit. This breakthrough paves the way for GaN to become the technology of choice for power conversion circuits that are made in silicon today.



Breakthrough achieved in Ceramics 3D Printing Technology

Researchers at HRL Laboratories, LLC, have achieved a new milestone in 3D printing technology by demonstrating an approach to additively manufacture ceramics that overcomes the limits of traditional ceramic processing and enables high temperature, high strength ceramic components.


HRL Passes Milestone with 1,001 Patents

Many New Year’s resolutions are abandoned come mid-January, but HRL Laboratories, LLC, succeeded in its quest to acquire more than 100 patents in 2015. As a result, the research and development company recently celebrated the acquisition of its 1001st patent.


HRL Laboratories Developing Nanoscale Fabrication Technology for Large-Scale Performance

Funded under the Atoms to Product (A2P) program through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), HRL’s Billion particle per second Nanoparticle Assembly project will develop processes to assemble nanoscale materials into forms that are compatible with existing manufacturing technologies.


Lightest. Metal. Ever.

Boeing features HRL Laboratories in this video about the Microlattice, the lightest metallic structure ever made. At 99.99% air, it’s light enough to balance on top of a dandelion, while its structure makes it strong. Strength and record breaking lightness make it a potential metal for future planes and vehicles.



HRL to Receive $2.2 Million Homeland Security Award for Mobile Authentication Research

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate has awarded HRL Laboratories, LLC, $2.2 million to develop technology that is capable of continuously confirming that the person operating a mobile device is the device’s authorized user. HRL’s Information and Systems Sciences Laboratory, in conjunction with its Microelectronics Laboratory, will create this new mobile device authentication technology.


Dr. Logan Sorenson Recognized as a “DARPA Riser”

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has selected HRL Laboratories’ Dr. Logan Sorenson as a “DARPA Riser,” one of approximately 50 early-career researchers who demonstrate the potential to be future technology leaders. During “DARPA Rising,” an event held on September 9, 2015, in St. Louis, Mo., Sorenson will have the opportunity to deliver a poster presentation to the DARPA director and technical team.
