ARLINGTON, Va.--Interested in seeing the future of Navy and Marine Corps technology? Want to discuss research opportunities with some of the brightest minds in the military, federal government, industry and academia? Registration is now open for those wishing to attend the Office of Naval Research's (ONR) biennial 2017 Naval Future Force Science and Technology (S&T) Expo.

Scheduled for Jul. 20-21, 2017, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., the Expo is the premier S&T event for the Navy and Marine Corps and is held every two years.

The upcoming Expo will feature remarks by the new Chief of Naval Research Rear Adm. David J. Hahn.

The Expo also provides a forum for high-level speakers from across the Department of Defense and federal government to convey crucial information, opportunities and important announcements.

As in previous years, there will be one-on-one appointments with program officers, breakout and poster sessions, tech talks, live demos, exhibits and seminars designed to help participants learn about the Naval Research Enterprise and how to support it.

The Expo is 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.
