The Advanced Technology Laboratory (ATL) conducts a multi-disciplinary investigation into underwater acoustics, sonar system design, underwater mechanical and optical system design, and electromagnetic systems. This research supports both submarines and surface ships, providing tactical capability for the U.S. Navy and protecting naval bases, ports, and harbors in both the United States and around the world. Some of the systems developed by ATL are in use by explosive ordinance disposal divers and U.S. Special Forces.
