Supports the Navy's power projection needs, fostering the technology development of naval aircraft, structures, propulsion, autonomy, energetics, directed energy and electric weapons.

Sea-Based Aviation

ONR seeks to leverage the resources of academia, industry and the Navy to address Sea-Based Aviation by making it the fifth National Naval Responsibility (NNR). NNRs exist to highlight areas where the Navy and Marine Corps depend on robust, long-term research that may not be driven otherwise by commercial demand. The new designation addresses science and technology (S&T) challenges associated with sea-based aircraft operations. Establishing sea-based aviation as an NNR will help ensure ONR continues focusing on necessary S&T talent and resources to meet future aviation needs specific to the Navy and Marine Corps.
