By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Naval Studies Board, Committee for the Review of ONR's Aircraft Technology Program

The workplace of Naval study (ONR) shriveled with the Naval reports Board (NSB) of the nationwide examine Council (NRC) to set up a committee to check ONR's plane know-how application (ATP). The committee convened on may well 15 and sixteen, 2001, and reviewed a few 28 technological know-how and know-how (S&T) efforts that have been awarded as constituting the ATP. The committee met individually on may possibly 17, 2001, to formulate its findings and proposals. This record represents the consensus opinion of the committee and is predicated at the details offered on the evaluate. The ONR ATP is living in the Strike know-how department (Code 351) of the Naval Expeditionary war technology and know-how division (Code 35). In 2001 the ATP is funded at $55.0 million, that is nearly 60 percentage of the Strike know-how department finances. The ATP S&T 2001 finances is extra divided into the next different types: (1) 6.1 simple learn at $4.3 million, (2) 6.2 exploratory improvement at $18.1 million, and (3) 6.3 complex improvement, together with expertise demonstrations, at $32.5 million. although, the ATP can 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 software components known as destiny Naval services (FNCs). the aim of the FNCs is to concentration complicated know-how improvement at ONR on naval strength features which have been pointed out as excessive precedence for the longer term through a cross-functional team of naval operators, naval improvement and help organisations, 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 components: built-in avionics, propulsion and tool, air car expertise, unmanned aerial vehicles/unmanned wrestle air automobiles (UAVs/UCAVs), survivability, and designated aviation tasks. a number of initiatives have been provided inside of each one thrust sector. The committee geared up this file according to those thrust components, and in different of those components it additionally indicates new S&T subject matters for attention for the long run ATP. The findings and proposals of the committee are summarized during this report.

This is an excellent program that is well structured and aggressive, with realistic and meaningful goals. The 6Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. 2001. , August 13. mil/tto/>. UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES/UNMANNED COMBAT AIR VEHICLES 33 UCAV-N effort consciously complements the Air Force’s program. Naval-unique issues are of prime importance, particularly carrier deck operations and integration with the Navy command, control, communications, computing, and intelligence (C4I) infrastructure.

In recent years, funding in this area has been declining. The current work appears to have a strong promise of transitioning useful technology to users in the near to medium term, and it appears to be reasonably well balanced across the technical disciplines. Some committee members are alarmed that funding is below the critical level needed to keep the Navy a smart buyer in this technical area. Most of the committee is concerned that not enough exploratory development is under way or planned to enable long-term advanced concepts and to prevent technology surprises.

This is true for all five of the platform signatures—radio frequency, infrared and visible spectra, acoustic, visual and electromagnetic, and gaseous and particulate emissions. Low-observable (LO) technology refers to the science of signature reduction technology and its application to a platform. Much in this area has been highly classified, for obvious reasons. However, in the past few years, DOD has revised its classification guide and has allowed much more discussion at lower classification levels in many areas.
