What Is Warfighter Performance?

The Warfighter Performance science and technology (S&T) focus area facilitates the readiness of naval forces at the individual, team and fleet level to meet the operational requirements in uncertain environments ranging from the most austere to highly complex. Specific areas for increasing readiness include efficient manpower selection and assignment, training, education and human-systems integration. Overall, the Warfighter Performance focus area has four objectives:

  1. Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education
  2. Bio-engineered Systems
  3. Warfighter Health and Survivability
  4. Human Systems Design and Decision Support

Office of Naval Research (ONR) leadership and decision-makers will deliver updates on priority warfighter performance research, key challenge areas and opportunities. This Focus Area Forum will concentrate on two current research areas supporting Warrior Resilience programs and Fleet Integrated Test, Experimentation and Planning (FITEP) initiatives.

Why You Should Attend:

This forum is unclassified and open to the first 100 qualified industry and academia performers to register. Attendees can participate in brief, one-on-one sessions with ONR program managers (requested during registration) to discuss new ideas and innovations. An open participant poster session will promote information exchange.
