Division 321: Ocean Sensing and Systems Applications


The Ocean Sensing and Systems Applications Division, Ocean Battlespace Sensing Department, conducts an extensive program of scientific inquiry and technology development. The division's interests directly relate to Navy and Marine Corps operations including undersea, expeditionary and special warfare in littoral environments. The National Academy of Sciences and ONR sponsored an article on Sounding Out the Ocean's Secrets as part of the Beyond Discovery Series. Visit Discovery of Sound in the Sea for an interactive website (aimed at K-12 students and teachers, and the interested public) that will introduce you to the science and uses of sound in the sea.
