Naval Science & Technology Vision: 

Naval Science & Technology Vision To inspire and guide innovation that will provide technology-based options for future Navy and Marine Corps capabilities… …and to avoid technological surprise.

Naval FY04 S&T Budget: 

Naval FY04 S&T Budget Advanced Technology Development 42% Applied Research 31% Basic Research 27% Investment by Performer Investment by Research Type

S&T Investment Program Issues circa 1998: 

S&T Investment Program Issues circa 1998 Concern whether S&T delivered to the fleet S&T investment was “platform centric” SYSCOMs desired more control of the 6.3 account Acquisition commitment lacking for mature S&T technologies Continual downward trend of S&T investment S&T required more focus on Naval ‘capability needs’ New Process was required to increase impact of S&T investment

Future Naval Capability Program: 

Future Naval Capability Program Programs below critical mass were never ready for transition

Technology “Valley of Death”: 

Technology “Valley of Death”


CNR Fleet/Force Initiatives FNCs Discovery and Invention The Way Ahead for Naval S&T …a look at tomorrow through the porthole of today...


Discovery & Invention (D&I) NRL Base Program Science shortfalls in topics with Naval interest Nurturing science opportunity High impacts/surprises Health of Academic pipeline – ideas/workforce National Naval Responsibilities Ocean Acoustics Undersea Weaponry Naval Engineering Innovative Naval Prototypes (INPs) Affordable Weapon Half-Length Torpedo Electromagnetic Gun Hy Fly-Hypersonic Strike Free Electron Lasers UCAV-N X-Craft UESA Quick Reaction SwampWorks Tech Solutions MCWL Time Critical Strike (TCS) Organic Mine Countermeasures (OMCM) Knowledge Superiority & Assurance (KSA) Littoral Antisubmarine Warfare (LASW) Expeditionary Logistics (ExLog) Fleet/Force Protection (FFP) Littoral Combat and Power Projection (LCCP) Missile Defense (MD) Advanced Capability Electric systems (ACES) Autonomous Ops (AO) Total Ownership Cost Reduction (TOC) Capable Manpower (CM) Warfighter Protection (WP) Future Naval Capabilities (FNCs) S&T Investment Categories Other Pass-Through - to JFCOM OSD Directed Infrastructure - Efforts enabling ONR’s mission execution such as IFO, conferences, outreach Quick Reaction and Other Virtual Technologies & Environments Persistent Littoral Undersea surveillance SEA Basing Enablers Tactical Use of Space 36 MW Superconducting Motor Advanced Multifunction RF System

FNC IPT Approach: 

FNC IPT Approach IPT oversight responsibilities: Approval of the Strategy/Products that Achieve the Enabling Capabilities Development & Approval of Technology Transition Agreements Approval of Business Plans Key is Transition to Acquisition Requirements Rep (Chair) Fleet/Force Rep S&T Rep Acquisition Rep Industry Board of Directors Model Consensus Process FNC IPT

FNC Business Approach: 

FNC Business Approach Development of a Business Plan Provides business case for S&T investment Documents product-specific exit criteria Contains high-level execution plan Documents acquisition community’s commitment to transitioned products New Guidance (Jan 2003) 80% of FNC investments must be tied to product transitions requiring TTA’s 20% available for innovative efforts Exception for LASW FNC: 20% Transition


Transition S&T delivers mature product to acquisition for development and production programs Agreement on product maturity and readiness S&T Transition occurs when exit criteria is met and the acquisition program office commences integration efforts

Technology Transition Agreement (TTA): 

Technology Transition Agreement (TTA) Documents the commitment between: Requirements/Resource sponsor Science and Technology sponsor (developer and provider of the product or capability) Acquisition sponsor (intended receiver of a product or capability) Serves as contract to develop, deliver and integrate a technology/product into an acquisition program

Integration Strategy: 

Integration Strategy Outlines the process by which the FNC product is to be integrated into the acquisition program. Includes the following elements as appropriate: Evolutionary acquisition, block upgrade, etc. Required contractor-to-contractor agreements Acquisition PE numbers funding the transition Annual PE funding levels committed to the transition program Transition date –the required delivery date of the product Key demonstration/test dates Statement conveying the level of commitment

Exit Criteria: 

Exit Criteria Identifies all quantifiable criteria that determines whether an FNC product is ready for transition. Negotiated exit criteria includes: A description of conditions under which technology/product will be tested/demonstrated prior to delivery to acquisition. Agreement on the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of the S&T product at transition

New Environment: 

New Environment Naval Power 21 N6/N7 alignment (Sea Power 21/MCP process) Pillar IPTs (Warfare Sponsors, FNC IPTs, SYSCOMs & ONR) Sea Trial (Pillar IPTs provide recommendations) Transition/Transformation 80%/20% split Realignment within existing ECs and FNC/EC New Starts for FY08 and Beyond

Future Naval Capabilities Program: 

Future Naval Capabilities Program In 1999, DoN adopted a process to concentrate significant S&T resources to maximize the likelihood of product transition to the fleet. - Investment approved by senior Naval leadership - Includes Marine Corps requirements The FNC Products were aligned under 13 senior level IPTs: Time Critical Strike Expeditionary Logistics Missile Defense Total Ownership Costs Fleet Force Protection Littoral ASW Organic Mine Countermeasures Autonomous Operations Knowledge Superiority & Assurance Warfighter Protection Advanced Capability Electric Systems Capable Manpower Littoral Combat & Power Projection

Future Naval Capabilities Program: 

Future Naval Capabilities Program NOW, FNC product selection realigned to fill warfighting gaps in Sea Power 21 pillars. - Sea Shield - Sea Strike - Sea Basing - FORCEnet Specific requirements based on N6/7 Mission Capability Packages (MCP) and on MC requirements analyses. Characteristics: - Products defined and demonstrated to close warfighter gaps - Buy-in by acquisition commands - Close coordination with SYSCOMS and Industry partners - Pillar-focused, with separate efforts for Medical (WP) and Personnel (CM) efforts FNCs – The path from Technology to Acquisition

Future Naval Capabilities: 

Future Naval Capabilities Delivering New Capabilities to the Fleet/Force A new way of managing S&T at ONR… Partners S&T with the requirements, acquisition, and fleet/force communities S&T emphasis on highest priority capabilities S&T funding coupled to acquisition funding Focuses on transition of technology products Management Oversight of Cost, schedule and technology development performance Continuously evolving program

FNC Summary: 

FNC Summary Successfully bridging the “Valley of Death” Focused on warfighter requirements Directly supports acquisition Aligned with Senior Leadership’s vision – Naval Power 21 Evolving process that addresses future warfighting requirements
