Artificial intelligence, swimmer detectors, and blast resistant structures

For the last 50 years, the Office of Naval Research has been in the business of guiding the most "imaginative research" * found across the country. Technologies taken for granted today the cell phone, the Global Positioning System, the laser, the national bone marrow donor program, for example all came from initial Navy science support. It all started during the final months of World War II and, most recently has led to such breakthroughs as autonomous vehicles and robotics, smart weapons, new semiconductor materials, progress in nanotechnologies, and agile vaccines, for example.

So, it should be no surprise that all along ONR has been eyeing science overseas. ONR's International Field Office in London has been funding overseas research for many years and business this year has been especially brisk. In London rooms used a half century ago by Eisenhower to wrap up the business of the War, the Navy recently wrapped up this year's business of overseas "imaginative research" by reviewing 63 international science and technology program proposals. Twenty-five of those, from 13 countries around the world, will be supported with funding from the U.S. Navy in 2003. **

The range and diversity of these international programs is quite remarkable, and if the majority of these sound particularly timely, this is no surprise either.

As a result of 9/11 and the high priority for new technologies to support anti-terrorism, force protection, and homeland defense, many of the programs selected for award were responding specifically to an anti-terrorism Broad Agency Announcement (BAA).

In Ireland, for example, ONR will fund a program to address the use of artificial intelligence and intelligence agents in gathering massive amounts of information, and enabling us to work in such information environments. In Norway, work will be funded for a program that will test the hypothesis that, for coastal surveillance, multi-frequency radar using tar
