Fires Thrust Area

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) Fires thrust seeks to enable warfighters employed in small, distributed units with tools to locate and decisively destroy larger enemy forces by applying timely, reliable, precise, and accurate fires from a myriad of platforms. Products will equip warfighters with integrated, lightweight optics and sensors to see through all battlefield conditions (day, night, low light, obscuration) and lightweight, organic, advanced weapons for the rapid, accurate, effective application of firepower.
