ONR’s directorates balance a robust science and technology (S&T) portfolio, allocating funds to meet the warfighter's requirements.
ONR Tests Augmented Reality Trainer
Marines were able to turn a lush golf course into a hostile battleground complete with tanks, mortar fire and smoke at a demonstration May 21 using an augmented reality training system from the Office of Naval Research.
At Marine Corps Base Quantico in Quantico, Virginia, the Augmented Immersive Team Trainer (AITT) moved one step closer to its ultimate goal of giving warfighters glasses that can be worn to enhance augmented reality training scenarios.

Fleet Week New York Kicks Off
Influenced by the physiological design of the Wrasse, a popular aquarium fish, WANDA (Wrasse-inspired Agile Near-shore Deformable-fin Automaton) has four fins on its sides for propulsion and control. Sophisticated algorithms use information about the vehicle’s motion and surrounding environment to control fin movement.
WANDA is one of several unmanned autonomous vehicles and other technologies to be displayed May 21-25 at Fleet Week New York, a free event open to the public. ONR will have exhibits on Piers 86 and 92, in Times Square, and at the New York Hall of Science in Queens.
