The workplace of Naval examine (ONR) reduced in size with the Naval experiences Board (NSB) of the nationwide study Council (NRC) to set up a committee to check ONR's plane expertise software (ATP). The committee convened on may possibly 15 and sixteen, 2001, and reviewed a few 28 technological know-how and expertise (S&T) efforts that have been offered as constituting the ATP. The committee met individually on may possibly 17, 2001, to formulate its findings and suggestions. This document represents the consensus opinion of the committee and is predicated at the info provided on the assessment. The ONR ATP is living in the Strike expertise department (Code 351) of the Naval Expeditionary battle technological know-how and expertise division (Code 35). In 2001 the ATP is funded at $55.0 million, that is nearly 60 percentage of the Strike know-how department price range. The ATP S&T 2001 finances is extra divided into the next different types: (1) 6.1 easy study at $4.3 million, (2) 6.2 exploratory improvement at $18.1 million, and (3) 6.3 complicated improvement, together with expertise demonstrations, at $32.5 million. notwithstanding, the ATP can be in significant transition starting in FY02.

Starting in FY02, all the 6.3 investment and one-half of the 6.2 investment on the ONR can be devoted to 12 significant software components often called destiny Naval features (FNCs). the aim of the FNCs is to concentration complex expertise improvement at ONR on naval strength services which were pointed out as excessive precedence for the longer term by means of a cross-functional crew of naval operators, naval improvement and help enterprises, and ONR software managers. Plans were made to combine numerous of the Code 351 courses reviewed into FNCs. The ATP was once provided to the committee in six thrust parts: built-in avionics, propulsion and gear, air automobile expertise, unmanned aerial vehicles/unmanned strive against air automobiles (UAVs/UCAVs), survivability, and detailed aviation initiatives. numerous tasks have been provided inside every one thrust region. The committee geared up this document in line with those thrust parts, and in different of those parts it additionally indicates new S&T issues for attention for the long run ATP. The findings and suggestions of the committee are summarized during this report.
