ONR to showcase cutting-edge technology at 2010 Sea-Air-Space Expo

April 30, 2010

The Office of Naval Research and the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) will exhibit an array of technology at the Navy League Sea-Air-Space 2010 Exposition. The expo takes place May 3-5 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center at National Harbor, Md., [www.seaairspace.org].

Displays feature the latest advanced naval technologies geared toward the warfighter for use in action around the world. These technologies include:

Electromagnetic Railgun - The electromagnetic railgun uses electricity to launch projectiles. Its range exceeds 230 miles with accuracy within five meters of its targets.

Ion Tiger - The Ion Tiger is an unmanned, fuel cell-powered, aerial vehicle capable of quiet surveillance flights in excess of 24 hours.

Integrated Topside - Integrated Topside (InTop) is an Innovative Naval Prototype program. It is developing a scalable family of electronic warfare, radar and communications capability through an integrated multifunctional, multibeam architecture that allows a reduced topside aperture profile.

REMUS - Remote Environmental Monitoring Unit(s), or REMUS, is a low-cost autonomous underwater vehicle. It is capable of rapid environmental surveys and underwater mine reconnaissance.

Numerous other high-tech projects and technologies from NRL and others will also be on display. Media will have the opportunity to speak with ONR and NRL representatives during the exhibition.

Navy League Sea-Air-Space Exposition is open to active duty and Reserve military, federal civilian employees, congressional members and staff, retired U.S. military and Navy League Members. There is no charge to attend the exposition and professional seminars.
