Abstract
The Naval Postgraduate School recognizes that the experimental approach is very important in education, especially in the basic sciences and in engineering. Graduate students in the U.S. Navy and in the other services need a "hands-on" experience in order to be able to validate assumptions, to verify complex analytical models, and to explore new fundamental knowledge. Since the Naval Postgraduate School is dedicated to educating for the future needs of the Naval Service, it is essential that a laboratory experience export students to the instruments which will allow the measurement of complex phenomena to be made and which may advance to fleet operations in the years ahead. During the past two decades, significant technological advances have occurred in numerous fields which must be incorporated into graduate curricula. New measuring systems using lasers and advanced optics, recent developments in communications and signal processing equipment, and the advancement of computerized data processors for measurement and control must all be treated. In addition, students should be exposed to and have an appreciation for the current high resolution, low noise, and fast response instrumentation available. The dramatic accomplishments in the areas of microprocessors, interactive computer graphics, and computer-aided design especially deserve attention. This document provides an updated source of information concerning present laboratory capabilities and activities at the Naval Postgraduate School with plans for future changes/additions. Many of the laboratories are used for teaching. as well as for research; some, however, are used solely for teaching, while others are uniquely related to ongoing faculty and student research programs. Our laboratories vary widely with regard to size of the facilities utilized, type of operation (e.g., the same use of chemical versus the routine operation of computer terminals), location (e.g .on campus versus mobile labs such as the research vessel ACANIA), type of equipment/instrumentation used, etc. The information provided in this document has been catalogued by academic department . In assessing objectives and future directions, some reference to the Naval Postgraduate School curricular programs is necessary. The identification of specific laboratories with curricular programs is therefore included.
