Check out the latest edition of Future Force magazine, and read about the latest in Marine Corps S&T.
This is the official web site for the Naval Science & Technology Future Force magazine, published by the Office of Naval Research.
Future Force magazine is written for civilian, contractor, and uniformed members of the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps, as well as members of government, academia, and industry. Specifically, the targeted audience is customers and authorizers (fleet, program offices, system commands, the Department of Defense, the Chief of Naval Operations, the Secretary of the Navy, Congress, and resource sponsors) of naval S&T.
Mission: Future Force showcases the current state and past accomplishments of the naval science and technology (S&T) community. The magazine shares and highlights the results of naval research to better inform authorizers, customers and users of the Department of Navy-funded S&T. It is produced four times a year by the Office of Naval Research for the benefit of the naval research community. Future Force is available to the public on the web, as well as in print, to select members of the naval S&T community.
