The Naval Aircraft Materials Laboratory was opened in 1946 as the Materials Laboratory (originally as an outstation of the Central Metallurgical Laboratory) at the Royal Naval Aircraft Repair Yard, Fleetlands. It dealt with all metallurgical and chemical problems affecting work in the yard, and later it concerned itself with Naval aircraft problems from further afield. It acquired the title Naval Aircraft Materials Laboratory in the early 1950s and since then its status and title have not changed. It is a department of the Royal Naval Aircraft Repair Yard, Fleetlands and is ultimately under the control of the Director General Aircraft (Naval).
