Lightening the Load

Marking a return to its high-mobility, high-tempo expeditionary roots, the Marine Corps is focused on the need to “Lighten the Load” for the warfighter — and the Office of Naval Research (ONR) is putting a heavy effort into innovative new technologies that will help.

This video highlights a number of the technologies from ONR that aid the Marines as the service reemphasizes mobile, amphibious capabilities.

One Response to Lightening the Load

  1. BG says:

    I’m all for this initiative, but this is nothing new. The Army and its research labs have already done the initial research, developed prototypes and spent billions of dollars on this already. This seems to be the old spin-outs from FCS (lighter, lethal and mobile), where the technology developed under that program has been leveraged across DoD and all Services.
