The purpose of this proposal is to enable the NPS Field Experimentation (NPS-FX) project begun (with USSOCOM funding) in FY03 to continue to support rapid capabilities development that confront current and future irregular and expeditionary challenges including Joint Urgent Operational Needs (JUONS), Navy Urgent Operational Needs, and/or support rapid insertion to a Navy Program of Record. To achieve this purpose NPS will create multi-institutional semi-structured learning environment events that incorporate faculty and student participation along with other domain experts to enable a variety of field experimentation that will explore developing technological capabilities to modify, eliminate and/or develop requirements.
NPS-FX project provides an operationally relevant, expeditionary environment ideal for experimentation and development of systems at technology readiness levels 4-7. Technologies relevant to several areas identified as priorities in the 2018 National Defense Strategy (unclassified summary) comprise the bulk of experiments that are supported by this program; including:
- Space and cyberspace as warfighting domains.
- Command, control, communications, computers and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR).
- Forward force maneuver and posture resilience.
- Advanced autonomous systems.
- Resilient and agile logistics.
