ONR outreach focuses on Pacific total force

ARLINGTON, Va.The Office of Naval Research (ONR) will bring its technologically advanced fuel cell vehicle (FCV) and scientific expertise to the 2012 Pacific Operational Science & Technology (S&T) Conference in Honolulu, March 19-22.

"The Pacific Rim is a key strategic area for the Navy and Marine Corps," said Rear Adm. Matthew Klunder, chief of naval research. "Gathering worldwide leaders in S&T at this event to discuss defense, security and energy-related challenges will increase collaboration and help us find ways to accelerate delivery of new military capabilities."

Klunder speaks during the March 22 "Research and Development Community" panel, along with representatives from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command; Air Force Research Laboratory; Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency; U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command; and Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

Approximately 400 senior Department of Defense leaders, both military and civilian, as well as leading members of industry and academia from around the world, are expected to attend. The event will focus on how S&T can solve challenges related to regional defense, cyber security, power and energy, communications and maritime security.

Representatives from ONR will showcase one of five Hawaii-based Navy FCVs and provide information about the organization and its initiatives in Booth 6 in the exhibit hall.

The hydrogen-based FCVs, sponsored by ONR, are designed and manufactured by General Motors for an FCV program at Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH). The vehicles are being tested for possible use at Department of the Navy (DoN) installations. At MCBH, plans call for more than 50 percent of the base vehicle fleet to use alternative fuels by the end of this year, increasing to 70 percent by 2015. FCV deployment ultimately could help achieve the secretary of the Navy's goal of reducing fossil fuel use in DoN's commercial vehicle fleet.

Additionally, fuel cell technology is being considered as a potential power source for unmanned undersea vehicles, auxiliary power units, pier-side generators and other applications.
