Meeting the 'Challenge': Office of Naval Research funds new projects
Date:12/13/2011

ARLINGTON, Va.In the spirit of science competitions that yielded technologies to send U.S. astronauts to the moon, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) selected five new basic research projects for significant funding, officials announced Dec. 12.

"We hope that the research will bring in new science areas and new principal investigators," said Dr. William Lukens, the program officer overseeing the effort for ONR's Basic Research Challenge (BRC).

The BRC program supports projects in areas not already addressed by ongoing science investigations within the organization. ONR reserves a small percentage of its basic research funds for this internal effort, giving program officers incentive to compete for resources for scientific pursuits that broaden their portfolios.

Out of 36 proposals, ONR officials chose five winning topics for fiscal year 2012. Each will receive a four-year award worth approximately $1.5 million annually.

The five topics and their respective program officers are:

  • Decentralized On-line Optimization; Dr. Don Wagner, Dr. Behzad Kamgar-Parsi, Dr. Jason Stack and Marc Steinberg
    The goal of this research is to develop theory and computational methods for solving resource-optimization problems under the assumption that information is revealed incrementally and follows a decentralized decision process.

  • Carbon Molecular Electronics; Dr. Chagaan Baatar and Dr. Paul Armistead
    The objective of this research is to encourage innovation in bottom-up chemical synthesis and assembly of graphene and other carbon-based electronic devices and circuits with atomic precision and Angstrom resolution.

  • Co-prime Sensor Array Signal Processing: A New Framework for Reduced Complexity Sensing; Dr. John Tague and Dr. Rabinder Madan
    The research will establish the theory of co-prime sensor array aperture design and signal processing.

  • Understanding and Characterizing Intuit
