“Developing new partnerships with industry and academia will accelerate the transition of our science and technology for the benefit of the Navy, Marine Corps, and the public,” said research physicist Joe Calantoni of the Ocean Sciences Division. “We are excited about the long-term potential of this new venture.”
The Tech Bridge is future-focused, growing coastal science and unmanned vehicle development, assured maritime access, operational meteorology and oceanography, hosting industry events and expanding strategic partnerships.
“We want to enable our scientists and engineers to transform their discoveries into commercial products,” Calantoni said.
NRL’s Ocean Sciences Division conducts research in ocean physics, coastal remote sensing, coastal and seafloor sciences, and geospatial sciences. Researchers work to understand the complex interactions between the ocean and atmosphere through a combination of sensing and simulation.
