The Office of Naval Research showed off what’s in store for Navy technology at the biennial Naval Future Force Science and Technology (S&T) Expo in Washington, D.C., July 20-21. The event showcased ONR-sponsored innovations from the Navy and Marine Corps.

Our camera crew got the chance to witness a few of these technologies up close. Automation, drones and unmanned technologies were a frequent theme.
