Abstract:

The mission of the Office of Naval Research ONR is to maintain a close relationship with the research and development community to support long-range research, foster discovery, nurture future generations of researchers, produce new technologies that meet known naval requirements, and provide innovations in fields relevant to the future Navy and Marine Corps. Accordingly, ONR supports research activities across a broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines. As one means of ensuring that its investments appropriately address naval priorities and requirements and that its pro- grams are of high scientific and technical quality, ONR requires that each of its departments undergo an annual review with a detailed focus on about one-third of the reviewed departments programs. The Aircraft Technology Program reviewed in this report resides within the Strike Technology Division Code 351 of the Naval Expeditionary Warfare Science and Technology Department Code 35 of ONR. At the request of ONR, the National Research Council NRC established the Committee for the Review of ONRs Aircraft Technology Program to review and evaluate ONRs Aircraft Technology Program components in the areas of integrated avionics, propulsion and power, air vehicle technology, unmanned aerial vehiclesunmanned combat air vehicles UAVsJUCAVs, and survivability against criteria that the committee would select. In addition, the review would seek to identify promising basic 6.1, exploratory 6.2, and advanced 6.3 research topics that could be considered to support the Aircraft Technology Program. At the request of the head of ONRs Code 35, the committee also reviewed a special aviation projects thrust
