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.

Lightweight Sandwich Structures Lay the Groundwork for Micro-Drones

According to Dr. Christopher Roper, HRL senior research staff engineer and co-author of “Enabling Ultra-Lightweight Structures: Microsandwich Structures with Microlattice Cores,” published in APL Materials, “Sandwich structures improve the performance of weight-sensitive vehicles like airplanes and helicopters because they’re lighter than solid materials.”

HRL Laboratories Applauds Staff Members Honored by National Academy of Engineering

HRL Laboratories, LLC is pleased to announce that staff members Dr. Andrea Corrion and Dr. Kevin Geary have been invited to participate in the National Academy of Engineering’s (NAE) highly selective symposium, U.S. Frontiers of Engineering.
