A member of the Applied Physical Sciences engineering staff presents APS' work with unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) and General Dynamics - Electric Boat President Jeff Geiger


Originally incorporated in 2002 with a focus on acoustics and hydrodynamics, Applied Physical Sciences Corporation (APS) continues to diversify our interests through a measured expansion of our technical staff.   As a result, about one-quarter of our technical staff members hold PhDs in engineering, physics, and mathematics.

In 2012, APS became a wholly owned subsidiary, and our services and solutions now complement the broad portfolio of our parent company, General Dynamics.

Our current efforts include Science and Technology (S&T) and Research and Development (R&D) for customers such as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Office of Naval Research (ONR).  APS also leads basic and applied research activities for our defense and commercial customers, as well as product development.

The APS logo is a symbolic reminder of our expertise in physics, mathematics and experimental approaches to wave propagation.  The logo reveals the classic “candelabra” pattern of the modal bending dispersion relations for thin cylindrical shells.
