ONR’s directorates balance a robust science and technology (S&T) portfolio, allocating funds to meet the warfighter's requirements.
UCLA Professor Earns Math Honors
Stanley Osher, a long-time professor of mathematics at the University of California Los Angeles, received the prestigious Carl Friedrich Gauss Prize from the International Congress of Mathematicians on Aug. 6. It is the highest honor in applied mathematics.
Osher was recognized for "influential contributions to several fields in applied mathematics and his far-raning inventions," many of which have led to significant milestones in naval research and applications. (Photo courtesy: Christelle Nahas/UCLA)

Crowdsourcing Speeds Disaster Relief
An aerial photo shows Ford Island, left, part of Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. The island served as the site for a simulated humanitarian assistance/disaster relief demonstration during the 2014 Rim of the Pacific maritime exercise last month.
ONR teamed with Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific to show how crowdsourcing technology can be coupled with commercial satellite imagery to help identify and mark critical needs areas in the wake of a disaster. The resulting heat maps could speed response times to critical locations, save lives and limit damage.
