A Colorado man made history at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) this summer when he became the first bilateral shoulder-level amputee to wear and simultaneously control two of the Laboratory’s Modular Prosthetic Limbs. Most importantly, Les Baugh, who lost both arms in an electrical accident 40 years ago, was able to operate the system by simply thinking about moving his limbs, performing a variety of tasks during a short training period.

Mission controllers at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Md., confirmed today that NASA’s MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry, and Ranging (MESSENGER) spacecraft impacted the surface of Mercury on April 30. MESSENGER was launched on August 3, 2004, and it began orbiting Mercury on March 18, 2011. The spacecraft completed its primary science objectives by March 2012. Because MESSENGER’S initial discoveries raised important new questions and the payload remained healthy, the mission was extended twice, allowing the spacecraft to make observations from extraordinarily low altitudes and capture images and information about the planet in unprecedented detail.

The Bimanual Dexterous Robotic Platform (also known as Robo Sally) developed by The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Md., is a robotic system designed to replicate human capabilities to safely remove the human performer from life threatening operations. The platform leverages two Modular Prosthetic Limbs developed by APL (http://www.jhuapl.edu/prosthetics) under the DARPA Revolutionizing Prosthetics program that has been featured on 60 Minutes and in National Geographic and Popular Mechanics. The BDRP has 42 individual Degrees of Control (17 in each limb, three in the torso, three in the neck, and two in the mobility platform). This video is a compilation of a number of mock scenarios that highlight the system capabilities. 1. Improvised Explosive Devi...

DARPA's Revolutionizing Prosthetics program, led by the Applied Physics Lab, is developing a mechanical arm that is a quantum leap beyond those now used by amputees. Thanks to APL biomedical innovations, prosthetics have entered a bold new era. Through The team set out to craft the most advanced artificial limb ever, one that would allow a user to button a shirt, pick up small objects or hold a loved one's hand. What's more, the prosthetic will be controlled by the wearer's own brain and muscle signals. Advances and research made in prosthetics by APL over the past several decades help move today's program forward.
A pioneering surgical technique has allowed Johnny Matheny, an amputee, to attach the Modular Prosthetic Limb developed by APL directly to his residual limb, enabling a greater range of motion and comfort than previously possible.

To advance the successful employment of autonomous machines and systems, APL has recently established the Intelligent Systems Center (ISC), a state-of-the-art research facility unlike any other in the nation. The ISC is focused on advancing the ability of machines to operate with increased autonomy in challenging environments, in ways that will benefit the nation. The ISC provides an innovation space for crossdisciplinary activities in three key domains: machine learning, robotic and autonomous systems, and applied neuroscience. ISC research will focus on enhancing machine intelligence and developing approaches for calibrating trust in those machines to perform high stakes tasks in collaboration with human and machine partners. Increased machine autonomy in the performance of those tasks ...
The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory celebrates its many contributions to Maryland’s place as a hub of space science and technology achievement.
