The Communications Research Laboratory (CRL) has a long history as the national laboratory responsible for telecommunication technologies, radio science, and radio applications in Japan. Today, CRL is expanding its activities to include fundamental and advanced research in information science, space communication technologies, terrestrial and planetary environmental science, time-and-space science, material science, and quantum electronics.
Telecommunication technologies will play an important role in the advanced information-intensive society that will let us enjoy affluent and comfortable lives in the 21st century, and CRL will develop a great deal of the advanced technology needed to create this society.
In 1994, the Science and Technology Agency of Japan designated CRL as a Center of Excellence (COE) for research of advanced optical communications and sensing technologies. With an open and liberal research policy, CRL is promoting collaborative research and researcher exchanges with domestic and foreign research centers and universities. CRL will continue to make efforts to become a premier institute in these research fields.
