Abstract
The Naval Center for Space Technology (NCST), the Navy's lead laboratory in space technology research and applications, was officially established in Washington, D.C. on October 1, 1986 as part of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL). NRL has extensive facilities, experience, and a highly successful track record in space sciences and satellite systems development. As such, NRL is a national asset and source for spacecraft development, integration of space experiments, and testing of all ranges of space hardware. This paper provides an overview of the NRL space systems capabilities, beginning with a historical perspective and culminating with summary descriptions of the accomplishments and capabilities of each of the NRL space activities.
