Innovation, Research and Transition make up ONR's triad of directorates.
What They Do
The offices of Innovation, Research and Transition are executive level offices that manage research portfolios in all three major phases of development funding: basic research (6.1), applied research (6.2) and advanced technology development (6.3). They are the executive level entry point for senior naval leaders seeking Office of Naval Research (ONR) support.
How They Work
ONR's directorates work closely with the acquisition community and warfighter stakeholders to ensure research investments address both near-term requirements as well as the next generation of naval technologies. The directorates work across ONR’s six science and technology departments to ensure synergy and integration of research.
