Abstract:

The organization, philosophy, and methodology of the Department of the Navy is examined as an integral part of the defense establishment effort in research, development, test and evaluation. The organizations and philosophies of the Department of Defense, the Department of the Army, and the Department of the Air Force are compared. The Navy effort in research, development, test and evaluation is examined in detail. The organization structure is studied as well as the traditions and philosophies which combine to support its bilinear peculiarities. The research cycle is examined as it exists today, and the complex review and coordination procedures are broken down and critically studied. In the light of the comparisons drawn, the objectives of the Navys research, development, test and evaluation program, the importance of research and development per se, and the critical analysis of the Navys organization and methodology, conclusions are drawn concerning problem areas and methods of solving these problem areas as well as means of improving the over-all research, development, test and evaluation program of the Department of the Navy.
