In today's environment of rapidly escalating costs, increasing technological complexity, and growing threat, we must actively seek ways to improve our effectiveness in applying limited resources to the design of Navy ships. One important aspect of this process involves the development and application of new technology. An exhaustive treatment of this subject is clearly beyond the scope of a single technical paper. It is the Authors' objective, however, to acquaint the reader with the nature and role of the Navy's Ship Research and Development Community; to examine some recent initiatives, key issues, and future trends; and, hopefully, to contribute in some small way to the building of a stronger constructive partnership between ship development and design activities. The view is that from the perspective of a Navy Laboratory, and it pertains to the the design of the ship itself as opposed to the weapons system.
