The place of work of Naval examine (ONR) shriveled with the Naval stories Board (NSB) of the nationwide examine Council (NRC) to set up a committee to check ONR's airplane know-how software (ATP). The committee convened on might 15 and sixteen, 2001, and reviewed a few 28 technology and expertise (S&T) efforts that have been provided as constituting the ATP. The committee met individually on might 17, 2001, to formulate its findings and suggestions. This document represents the consensus opinion of the committee and relies at the info offered on the evaluation. The ONR ATP is living in the Strike know-how department (Code 351) of the Naval Expeditionary struggle technological know-how and know-how division (Code 35). In 2001 the ATP is funded at $55.0 million, that's nearly 60 percentage of the Strike expertise department funds. The ATP S&T 2001 finances is extra divided into the subsequent different types: (1) 6.1 easy 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. although, the ATP may be in significant transition starting in FY02.

Starting in FY02, all the 6.3 investment and one-half of the 6.2 investment on the ONR can be devoted to 12 significant software parts known as destiny Naval services (FNCs). the aim of the FNCs is to concentration complex know-how improvement at ONR on naval strength functions which were pointed out as excessive precedence for the long run by way of a cross-functional workforce of naval operators, naval improvement and help firms, and ONR application managers. Plans were made to combine a number of 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 tool, air automobile know-how, unmanned aerial vehicles/unmanned strive against air automobiles (UAVs/UCAVs), survivability, and precise aviation initiatives. a number of initiatives have been offered inside of each one thrust region. The committee prepared this document in keeping with those thrust parts, and in different of those parts it additionally indicates new S&T issues for attention for the longer term ATP. The findings and suggestions of the committee are summarized during this report.

3 funds, with DARPA funding to transition the technology to application. 25 AIR VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY Findings This project is an elegant solution to a well-known problem of basic aerodynamics. The utilization of new materials technology in the torsional actuator to solve a Navy operational problem is an excellent example of S&T research. The researchers have blended the technology research with realistic operational requirements by setting the failure mode of the actuator to default for the original V-22 proprotor blade configuration.

Recommendations Steady-state computational fluid dynamics (CFD) results show some promise and should be continued, with the inclusion of critical unsteady aerodynamic effects. In addition, because of the research finding that root moment is important, aeroelastic evaluation of the configuration is recommended. This project is scheduled for completion in FY02. Research should continue until the physical mechanisms that cause abrupt wing stall—for both notched and unnotched wings—are clearly understood.

Apparently the Autonomous Operations FNC program is to be detailed after the BAA responses are received. While good ideas can be obtained by means of BAAs, there is considerable risk in not having a better definition of requirements at this stage of a major FNC. The overall program is to be a sequence of three demonstrations, with increasing levels of integration. If well chosen, these demonstrations can provide the needed structure. However, these planned “technical capability/products” demonstrations seem to be somewhat misdirected.
