We’ve all heard of the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and its renowned medical institutions. But just 20 miles south of Baltimore is the JHU Applied Physics Lab (APL), a $1B+ in annual revenue, 7500 person Division of JHU that conducts military R&D and Space Science. Please join the ASME Baltimore Section as they host a FREE Zoom webinar featuring Mr. Jamie Holmes, Author and Future Tense Fellow, New America for “The Smart Fuse, and the Founding of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory”. During this 1-hour webinar, you’ll learn about the WWII problem of destroying enemy aircraft, the development of the proximity fuze, the R&D that took place, the politics, the funding, and the founding of JHU/APL.
