Good news (for robot builders)
The Office of Naval Research has recently released its "Naval Science and Technology Strategic Plan" and I got to see it.
It appears they are making robotics technology the #1 priority - across the board.
If your technology is robotic, and it has at sea-applications (vision, UUV, sonar, scanning, communications, UAV, swarming, biosensors, biomimetics, the list goes on), they are VERY interested.
Just figured those of you readers who have a robotics company would be interested
(yes, there are quite a few who visit SoR)
