Abstract

The pursuit of the proximity fuze not only gave birth to APL in 1942, but also established the essential elements of the Laboratory's service in the realm of sensors, including the related science, technology, strategic contributions, technology transfer, production oversight, fielding, and interaction with military sponsors and soldiers. The comprehensive and focused approach that allowed the development of the proximity fuze is present today in many sensor projects as they evolve from initial concept to operational use in the field. In this article we present examples of recent projects that illustrate the diversity of sensor activities at APL, as well as the legacy of the Laboratory's first project.
