Full Description:

The Office of Naval Research, known widely as ONR, was formed in 1946 primarily to support the pursuit of basic science to help ensure future U.S. naval dominance. After the Cold War, the U.S. entered a period of greater fiscal constraints and the concept of warfare largely shifted from super-power conflicts to an era of asymmetric warfare.

Naval Innovation is a narrative account of ONR’s efforts to respond to this transformation amidst increasing pressure to focus on programs directly relevant to the Navy, but without sacrificing the pursuit of fundamental science. Told through the eyes of the admirals leading ONR and the department heads who oversee key programs, it holds great lessons and insights for how the U.S. government should fund and maintain military R&D in a new era of smaller conflicts in unconventional arenas.

Robert Buderi is founder and editor in chief of Xconomy, an online business news company. Formerly editor in chief of Technology Review magazine and BusinessWeek’s technology editor, he is the author of Guanxi, Engines of Tomorrow and The Invention That Changed the World. He lives in Cambridge, MA.
