The Admiralty Marine Technology Establishment (AMTE) came into existence on 1 November 1977, following decisions announced in the 1976 Statement on the Defence Estimates, on the second stage of a rationalisation programme for the Ministry of Defence's Research and Development Establishments.
AMTE was formed by the integration of the Admiralty Experiment Works (AEW), the Admiralty Materials Laboratory (AML), the Admiralty Research Laboratory (ARL), the Central Dockyard Laboratory (CDL), the Naval Construction Research Establishment (NCRE), and the Royal Naval Physiological Laboratory (RNPL), along with their various outstations, and also the Admiralty Experimental Diving Unit at HMS Vernon.
AMTE became part of the Admiralty Research Establishment (ARE) in 1984.
