Focus Area Forum
Warfighter Performance

Mark your calendars to attend ONR's Focus Area Forum: Warfighter PerformanceImage - Focus Area Forum Warfighter Performance

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 Training, Experimentation and Planning (FITEP) initiatives.
