The Office of Naval Research coordinates, executes, and promotes the science and technology programs of the United States Navy and Marine Corps through schools, universities, government laboratories, and nonprofit and for-profit organizations. It provides technical advice to the Chief of Naval Operations and the Secretary of the Navy and works with industry to improve technology manufacturing processes.

The rotating images at left illustrate some of the science and technology that ONR supports. Visit our Media area for more information.

An ONR initiative , succinctly designated “Uncertainty,” is working to determine the accuracy of forecasts based on such factors as acoustic sensor performance, model accuracy, and environmental variability, as well as the skill levels of personnel.
