2017 Naval Future Force Science and Technology Expo

The Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) biennial 2017 Naval Future Force Science and Technology (S&T) EXPO will take place July 20-21, 2017.

The Expo is the premier S&T event for the Navy and Marine Corps and is held every two years. It draws several thousand attendees and is designed to support the objectives of the Naval S&T Strategy. CNR RADM Hahn will discuss his strategic vision: "Naval Research: A Framework for the Navy & Marine Corps After Next."

It also will showcase some of the Navy’s and Marine Corp’s latest technologies and bring together the brightest minds from around the world to share information; discuss research opportunities; and build partnerships between the Navy, Marine Corps, industry and academia.

Attendees will have access to senior leadership and program managers to learn how to do business with ONR. The Expo also provides a forum for high-level speakers from across the DoD and federal government to convey crucial information, opportunities and important announcements.

As in previous years, there will be one-on-one appointments, information kiosks with program officers, breakout and poster sessions, exhibits and seminars designed to help participants learn about ONR’s mission and how to support it.

Come learn more about the many opportunities in naval research at the EXPO. Diverse opportunities range: from laboratory scientists, to design engineers, to program officers who direct research investments; unique skills are needed in the business of research to include contracting, grants, human resourcing, IT, and financial management; locations span the country from coast to coast, and include unique international assignments. Participating commands at the EXPO include:

  • Office of Naval Research
  • Office of Naval Research- Global
  • Naval Research Laboratory
  • Naval Sea Systems Command and their Warfare Centers (NAVSEA)
  • Naval Air Systems Command and their Warfare Centers (NAVAIR)
  • Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR)
  • SPAWAR Systems Centers (Atlantic and Pacific)


The Expo will be co-sponsored by the American Society of Naval Engineers—the leading society for engineers, scientists and other professionals who design, develop, test and maintain naval and maritime ships, submarines and aircraft, and their associated systems and subsystems.
