ONR’s directorates balance a robust science and technology (S&T) portfolio, allocating funds to meet the warfighter's requirements.
"I cannot emphasize enough how important is the sustained support that ONR provides in a mission-oriented framework. This has been critical for Gallium Nitride (GaN) and it is an absolute fact that without ONR support, GaN development in the U.S. would have been second rate, if that."

New findings by scientists at the University of Washington demonstrate that a five-minute measurement of resting-state brain activity predicted how quickly adults picked up a second language. The ONR-sponsored study is the first to use patterns of resting-state brain waves to determine subsequent language learning rate.
