Abstract : The University Research Initiative for Combat Readiness includes nineteen (19) research and development projects relevant to combat readiness. Projects being supported by this initiative address 6 major DoD mission areas including: (1) chemical and biological warfare, (2) target acquisition and identification, (3) anti-submarine warfare, (4) combat medicine, (5) biodeterioration, and (6) command, control, and communications. These projects were selected for support based on an existing research capability that could be accelerated to create cost savings to the ONR by bringing results to the field earlier. For the present report period directors of the individual projects report 156 publications in progress, in press, or submitted for publication.
