New Strategic Direction for Navy S&T
At the upcoming Naval Future Force Science and Technology Expo–to be held in Washington, D.C., July 20 to 21–Chief of Naval Research (CNR) RAdm. David Hahn will announce a new strategic direction for the Navy’s science and technology and research and development programs.
As adversaries move quickly to advance their technological capabilities, Hahn’s vision supports Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson, who has said the pace of technology development and delivery in the United States Navy and Marine Corps must accelerate in order to maintain the technological edge for U.S. warfighters.
Details of the CNR’s guidance will be unveiled to conference attendees via a widely anticipated new document on the way forward for naval research: “Naval Research and Development: A Framework for Accelerating to the Navy and Marine Corps after Next.”
