The Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program JNLWP Science and Technology Programs intent is to Foster the ideation, maturation, and demonstration of innovative and compelling NLW technologies for the Joint Force through focused investment and collaboration internal and external to the DOD Research and Engineering R and E Enterprise. This JNLWP Science and Technology Strategic Plan articulates a direction for future JNLWP science and technology investment to spark innovation and cooperative research and development partnerships across industry, academia, and government. To better promote communication and clarity of ideas for future non-lethal weapons NLW science and technology efforts, this plan begins by outlining the strategic context of potential future operating environments and some of the unique aspects of NLW technology development. The plan then defines a series of JNLWP Science and Technology Objectives STOs based on validated and emerging Joint Force requirements and shaped by future operating concepts. These STOs will act as guideposts for JNLWP science and technology investment through 2025.
