The U.S. Office of Naval Research Global

Abstract:

The U.S. Office of Naval Research Global (ONR Global) provides worldwide science & technology (S&T)-based solutions for current and future naval challenges. Leveraging the expertise of more than 50 scientists, technologists and engineers, ONR Global maintains a physical presence on five continents. The command reaches out to the broad global technical community and the operational fleet/force commands to foster cooperation in areas of mutual interest and to bring the full range of possibilities to the Navy and Marine Corps. Shortly after ONR was founded in 1946, the command assumed the responsibility of the wartime-era's Office of Scientific Research and Development liaison office in London. It aimed to identify promising research opportunities in Europe and the Middle East. By 1977, the ONR's European and Tokyo offices had combined to form the international field office with a single, Department of the Navy-wide, international S&T strategy for fostering international collaboration. Over the decades, ONR Global has reached out to increase and expand its cooperative activities with offices in Singapore, Tokyo, Santiago, Prague, and most recently, Sao Paulo in 2014.
