Abstract:

This is the first issue of the Innovation Newsletter, which we plan to publish on a quarterly basis. We hope to use this publication to communicate current activity at the Office of Naval Research ONR and other organizations that increase or leverage innovation in the Science and Technology ST community. This is the perfect time to begin this outreach effort -- we have a new Chief of Naval Research CNR at ONR, and a new administration filling our most important positions throughout government. It is during times of change like this that innovation can thrive or wither. As a community it is essential that we keep innovation a part of our thinking, not just in ST, but in our business practices, our personnel decisions, and how we approach partnering in all our endeavors. For your background, the mission of the Office of Innovation is to promote, foster, and develop innovative science, technologies, processes and policies that support the Department of the Navy. In support of that mission, we strive to fund research that eliminates the tough technical barriers to achieving our critical warfighting capabilities of the future. As a result, it is imperative that we understand where the high value, critical challenges reside and then push the boundaries of our technical talent as a nation to deliver transformational warfighting capabilities to the men and women of the Navy and Marine Corps.
