The High Energy Space Environment Branch at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory works to understand the high-energy environment through the research, development, and deployment of advanced radiation detectors in space and terrestrial environments, addressing priority S&T goals of DoD, NASA, and other civilian agencies. Our work spans all parts of instrument development (“from idea to implementation”). This work includes:

Toward these ends, the Branch supports several research activities, including:

The Branch is currently looking for individuals with experience at all stages of radiation instrument development, with particular focus on the following:
