ABOUT US

Established in 2008, the Applied Research Laboratory at the University of Hawai‘i (ARL at UH) is the fifth of five Navy-sponsored University-Affiliated Research Centers. The ARL at UH serves as a center of excellence for critical Navy and national defense needs, conducting research, development, testing and evaluation (RDT&E) to address challenging and emerging problems. ARL at UH efforts focus on Ocean Environmental Effects; Astronomical Research; Advanced Electro-Optical Systems, Detectors, Arrays and Instrumentation; Environmental Sensor Research and Remote Sensing; New Renewable Energy; and Mission-Related and Public-Services-Oriented Research and Development. On May 13, 2019, Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) awarded a five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract to the ARL at UH to continue its support of critical Navy and Department of Defense requirements.

The NAVSEA contract is a sole-source mechanism that allows the Navy and other federal agencies to fund research at the University of Hawai‘i and the ARL at UH that falls within the ARL’s core competency areas.
