The place of work of Naval examine (ONR) gotten smaller with the Naval stories Board (NSB) of the nationwide learn Council (NRC) to set up a committee to check ONR's plane know-how application (ATP). The committee convened on might 15 and sixteen, 2001, and reviewed a few 28 technology and know-how (S&T) efforts that have been provided as constituting the ATP. The committee met individually on may well 17, 2001, to formulate its findings and suggestions. This document represents the consensus opinion of the committee and is predicated at the info awarded on the overview. The ONR ATP is living in the Strike expertise department (Code 351) of the Naval Expeditionary conflict technology and expertise division (Code 35). In 2001 the ATP is funded at $55.0 million, that's nearly 60 percentage of the Strike know-how department finances. The ATP S&T 2001 finances is additional divided into the next different types: (1) 6.1 simple study at $4.3 million, (2) 6.2 exploratory improvement at $18.1 million, and (3) 6.3 complex improvement, together with know-how demonstrations, at $32.5 million. notwithstanding, the ATP may be in significant transition starting in FY02.

Starting in FY02, the entire 6.3 investment and one-half of the 6.2 investment on the ONR should be devoted to 12 significant software parts known as destiny Naval services (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 long run by way of a cross-functional team of naval operators, naval improvement and aid companies, and ONR software managers. Plans were made to combine numerous of the Code 351 courses reviewed into FNCs. The ATP used to be awarded to the committee in six thrust components: built-in avionics, propulsion and gear, air motor vehicle expertise, unmanned aerial vehicles/unmanned strive against air cars (UAVs/UCAVs), survivability, and distinctive aviation tasks. a number of initiatives have been provided inside each one thrust region. The committee geared up this document in line with those thrust components, and in different of those parts it additionally indicates new S&T themes for attention for the long run ATP. The findings and proposals of the committee are summarized during this report.

It should continue to pursue the heavily loaded composite control surface hinge and fittings. Long-lasting S&T benefits can also be achieved by leveraging the more accurate analytical predictions of buffet loads that are being developed by other Navy groups and external groups. The MUST project should clarify which types of failure modes are being evaluated, whether micromechanical considerations are included, and how the life of the engineered failure mode will be quantified and used to derive field-level inspection strategies and metrics.

Long-term goals look to the development of an autonomous vehicle control capability that not only flies the aircraft but is also capable of distributed, collaborative operations with other unmanned and manned aircraft, planning in the face of uncertainty, independent action/adaptation, and situation- and self-awareness—all with minimal human intervention. To implement this ambitious UAV/UCAV vision, ONR plans a combination of support contractors, various workshops and working groups from industry, academia, and government, and a broad area 34 2001 ASSESSMENT OF THE OFFICE OF NAVAL RESEARCH’S AIRCRAFT TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM announcement (BAA) that has just been issued.

ONR has requested another $300,000 to perform post-ATD flight demonstrations in FY02. Assuming success of the flight tests, the challenge remaining is to transition the CRW concept into future Navy UAV/UCAV designs or perhaps to position it as a candidate future upgrade for the Navy’s helicopter-like vertical takeoff and landing tactical uninhabited aerial vehicle (VTUAV) (planned as the Pioneer replacement), currently under contract for engineering and manufacturing development. Few such near-term opportunities are evident.
