Identification of Promising Naval Aviation Science and Technology Opportunities A Terms of Reference At the request of the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Naval Studies Board (NSB) of the National Research Council will conduct a study to identify promising naval aviation science and technology (S&T) opportunities, to include basic research (6.1), applied research (6.2), and advanced technology development (6.3) areas. Specifically, the study will: Review naval and joint operational concepts (e.g., Naval Power 21, Joint Vision 2020) and plans for future naval and joint aviation; Identify naval aviation capabilities as a means to employ those operational concepts and plans, including any capability gaps not accounted for or for which no requirements exist; and Recommend S&T opportunities (6.1, 6.2, and 6.3) to ONR that could support future naval aviation capabilities and address any capability gaps. In addition, the study will provide recommendations for naval aviation efforts in the 2007 to 2010 and 2011 to 2025 time frames, and it will categorize capabilities and capability gaps as (1) naval unique, i.e., only required by naval missions; (2) naval essential, i.e., important for naval missions and for non-naval missions as well; and (3) naval relevant, i.e., useful for naval missions and for non-naval missions as well. Finally, while the review will not provide organizational recommendations, it may provide budgetary recommendations in the context of any programs that should be increased, decreased, or eliminated.
