1 Office of Naval Research Sea-based Aviation: A National Naval Responsibility (NNR) Dr. Thomas J. Beutner, SES Director for Aerospace Sciences Research Division Air Warfare and Weapons Department (Code 35) Office of Naval Research (ONR)

2 To allow ONR to maintain the health/currency/technical superiority of identified Navy- unique S&T in order that: 1. A robust U.S. research capability to work on long term S&T problems of interest to the Department of the Navy is sustained; 2. An adequate pipeline of new scientists and engineers in disciplines of unique Navy importance is maintained; and 3. ONR can continue to provide the S&T products necessary to ensure future superiority in integrated naval warfare.

3 (1) Baseline capability of focus area; (2) Program funding and funding trends; (3) Scope of naval responsibility; (4) Scope, degree and stability of non-Navy funding sponsors; (5) Performer base (academia, government, industry); (6) Infrastructure (focus area leadership); (7) Knowledge-base pipeline (graduate and post-doctoral programs); (8) Facilities and equipment (ships, test tanks, etc.); (9) Integration with and/or transition to higher category programs ONR must ensure U.S. world leadership in these few unique areas through research, recruitment and education, to maintain an adequate base of talent and sustain critical infrastructure for research and experimentation. Nomination as NNR S&T areas identified as candidates for NNR status will undergo a detailed review and assessment by a special review board. The program will be assessed in the areas of:

4 Data Call Support The following questions support our data call. 1.Identify S&T areas currently addressed by your organization which support Sea-based Aviation. 2.Comment on adequacy of your investments/programs to address technical gaps for future Sea Based Aviation requirements or concepts. 3.Identify critical S&T facilities or test resources in your organization which support Sea Based Aviation.
