The place of work of Naval study (ONR) gotten smaller with the Naval stories Board (NSB) of the nationwide study Council (NRC) to set up a committee to study ONR's airplane know-how software (ATP). The committee convened on may well 15 and sixteen, 2001, and reviewed a few 28 technological know-how and expertise (S&T) efforts that have been awarded as constituting the ATP. The committee met individually on might 17, 2001, to formulate its findings and suggestions. This record represents the consensus opinion of the committee and is predicated at the details awarded on the evaluate. The ONR ATP is living in the Strike know-how department (Code 351) of the Naval Expeditionary conflict technology and expertise division (Code 35). In 2001 the ATP is funded at $55.0 million, that's nearly 60 percentage of the Strike know-how department funds. The ATP S&T 2001 price range is extra divided into the next different types: (1) 6.1 uncomplicated study at $4.3 million, (2) 6.2 exploratory improvement at $18.1 million, and (3) 6.3 complicated improvement, together with expertise demonstrations, at $32.5 million. even though, the ATP could be in significant transition starting in FY02.

Starting in FY02, all the 6.3 investment and one-half of the 6.2 investment on the ONR may be devoted to 12 significant application components known as destiny Naval features (FNCs). the aim of the FNCs is to concentration complex expertise improvement at ONR on naval strength services which have been pointed out as excessive precedence for the long run by means of a cross-functional workforce of naval operators, naval improvement and aid businesses, and ONR software managers. Plans were made to combine a number of of the Code 351 courses reviewed into FNCs. The ATP used to be awarded to the committee in six thrust parts: built-in avionics, propulsion and tool, air automobile expertise, unmanned aerial vehicles/unmanned wrestle air autos (UAVs/UCAVs), survivability, and unique aviation initiatives. a number of initiatives have been provided inside of every one thrust region. The committee equipped this record according to those thrust parts, and in different of those parts it additionally indicates new S&T issues for attention for the long run ATP. The findings and suggestions of the committee are summarized during this report.

Along with the Autonomous Operations FNC, ONR 35 has an enormous opportunity to rapidly advance UAV/UCAV technology, with early transition as a prime objective.

2 funding, a review of them in isolation runs the risk of being out of context. Regardless, these are all mainline, long-term gas turbine research topics done by creditable organizations. These efforts represent a reasonable research investment for the Navy. However, they are in no way Navyspecific and most do not fall into the category of D&I. None represent new ideas, but rather are part of the stepwise, long-term progression needed to develop new technology to the point that it can be adopted by gas turbine engine development programs with acceptable levels of technical risk.

Also, if the VTUAV is to be used as a demonstration platform, a firm relationship needs to be established with Northrop Grumman, builder of the VTUAV, to ensure a clear pathway for integration of the technology/system provided by an awardee. The committee recommends that the VTUAV platform builder have at least an associate contractor relationship with the developer; otherwise the government will be in the position of being the integrator—a task that government has proven time and again it is ill-equipped to perform.
