The Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) will showcase various technologies at the 2017 Sea-Air-Space Exposition, to be held April 3-5 at the Gaylord Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.
Sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, researchers at Stanford University found a new way to precisely measure the vortices-circular patterns of rotating air-created by birds' wings during flight. The results shed light on how these creatures produce enough lift to fly.
Augmented reality systems and advanced wireless networks were among the technologies shown during the Ship-to-Shore Maneuver Exploration and Experimentation Advanced Naval Technology Exercise (S2ME2 ANTX) 2017-a set of amphibious exercises May 4 at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in California.
Battlefield commanders confront life-or-death situations requiring fast, yet informed, decisions. To develop, strengthen and accelerate these quick-thinking abilities-particularly among small-unit leaders-the U.S. Marine Corps is distributing new "tactical decision kits" to 24 infantry battalions.
Blasting video game zombies, aliens and gangsters might not seem intellectually stimulating, but current research shows these computerized conflicts actually sharpen a range of cognitive skills-including better multitasking, increased attention span, faster reaction time and greater visual acuity.
The Office of Naval Research's (ONR) TechSolutions program has sponsored the development of the Deployable Ship Integration Multitouch System-DSIMS, for short-to make the jobs of aircraft handlers easier.
With support from the Office of Naval Research (ONR), Dr. Binoy Ravindran, an engineering professor at Virginia Tech, has designed a system that could revolutionize how military and commercial computing systems perform.
At the upcoming Naval Future Force Science and Technology Expo, to be held in Washington July 20-21, Chief of Naval Research (CNR) Rear Adm. David Hahn will announce a new strategic direction for the Navy's science and technology and research and development programs.
Autonomy and the future force were in the spotlight, as nine student-led teams tested their maritime engineering skills during the 10th annual International RoboBoat Competition, held June 20-25 in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Adm. John Richardson, chief of naval operations, and Gen. Paul Selva, vice chief of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will be among the keynote speakers at the Office of Naval Research's (ONR) biennial 2017 Naval Future Force Science and Technology (S&T) Expo.
What do a shark, coffin and ice cream cone have in common? They're all student-built, human-powered submarines, and they competed in the 14th biennial International Submarine Races (ISR), at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Carderock Division, in Bethesda, Maryland.
The signal lamp aboard the USS Stout flashed light bursts to the USS Monterey, located pierside 250 feet away. Aboard the Monterey, its own signal lamp used a mounted camera to receive the incoming Morse code-which then was converted into text appearing on an accompanying handheld device.
