Submit a Proposal

Using the Naval Science and Technology Strategic Plan as its guide, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) fosters, plans, facilitates and transitions scientific research in recognition of its paramount importance to enable future naval power and the preservation of national security.

To ensure fairness in the consideration of proposals for ONR systems engineering and technical assistance and/or support services, the naval command has implemented policies to protect against organizational conflicts of interest.

Headquartered in Arlington, Va., ONR coordinates, executes and promotes the science and technology programs of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps through partnerships with schools, universities, government laboratories and nonprofit and for-profit organizations. ONR provides technical advice to the Chief of Naval Operations and the Secretary of the Navy and works with industry to improve technology manufacturing processes.
