The Department of Defense is developing the means to transform the
nation's armed forces to meet future military challenges. For the
Navy and Marine Corps, this vision is encompassed in Naval Power
21. Many new war-fighting concepts will be needed to implement this
vision, and the ONR has requested the NRC to identify new science
and technology opportunities for new naval aviation capabilities to
support those concepts. This report presents an assessment of what
they imply for naval aviation, an analysis of some capabilities
that, if developed, would make a significant contribution to
realizing those concepts, and an identification of key technologies
in which ONR could invest to achieve those capabilities. In
particular, the report focuses on seven key capabilities:
multispectral defense, unmanned air operations, hypersonic weapons
delivery, fast-kill weapons, heavy-lift air transport, intelligent
combat information management, and omniscient intelligence.
