Fiscal Year 2021 Office of Naval Research ONR Manufacturing Science Program
Mandatory White Paper due March 6, 2020.
The objective of the Manufacturing Science (ManScience) program is to support fundamental scientific research to facilitate or enable the advancement/development of manufacturing technologies for Naval components. Research proposals are encouraged to include a modeling component to help direct the research. The focus of the Manufacturing Science program is on Naval manufacturing, preference will be given to Naval-unique or Naval-centric topics. This program has three primary potential focus areas:
- Fundamental research programs needed to support significant advances in current Naval manufacturing technologies,
- Fundamental research programs supporting new or developing Naval manufacturing technologies, or
- Fundamental research programs to design/optimize the materials used in Naval manufacturing technologies
