The Research and Sponsored Programs Office is pleased to support the Naval Research Program (NRP) in the third complete fiscal year of the program. The Naval Research Program is an official Navy and Marine Corps chartered program, having had the charter officially signed jointly by the Chief of Naval Research and Commander, Marine Corps Battle Lab in August of 2015. The results of the research sponsored within FY16 have made significant contributions in the Department of the Navy (DON), providing input to key operational decision-makers and in areas that support cost savings in a fiscally constrained environment. The NRPs funding and program goals are also directly in line with SECNAV's goal to provide research to "support[s] the Navy in reaching well-informed, objective decisions on strategic, operational, and programmatic issues through collaborative research." This report highlights salient features and activities across the spectrum of NPS NRP research activities conducted on behalf of both Navy and Marine Corps topic sponsors during the 2016 fiscal year. Each of the 86 research projects' executive summary included herein outlines key results. While most of the summaries detail final results, some projects have multi-year project lengths and, therefore, progress-to-date is reported. The NRP is one critical component of the NPS research portfolio. Under the stewardship of the NPS president, it utilizes direct funding to assist the naval community while also informing NPS students and faculty about the latest operational questions. Looking forward to FY17, the program management will continue to be under the direction of Mr. Rodman Abbott. His leadership builds upon the already well established program foundations that have been laid down in FY14 -16. My hope is that the naval communities will join with me in the continued support and contribution of the Naval Research Program.
