Bevilacqua REMOTE SENSING PHYSICS BRANCH RADIO/IR/OPTICAL SENSORS BRANCH 7210 COASTAL AND OCEAN REMOTE SENSING BRANCH 7220 IMAGE SCIENCE AND APPLICATIONS BRANCH 7260 7230 Basic Responsibilities The Remote Sensing Division is the Navy’s center of excellence for remote sensing research and development, conducting a program of basic research, science, and applications aimed at the development of new concepts for sensors and imaging systems for objects and targets on the Earth, in the near-Earth environment, and in deep space. The research, both theoretical and experimental, deals with discovering and understanding the basic physical principles and mechanisms that give rise to target and background emission and to absorption and emission by the intervening medium. The accomplishment of this research requires the development of sensor systems technology. This development effort includes active and passive sensor systems to be used for the study and analysis of the physical characteristics of phenomena that give rise to naturally occurring background radiation, such as that caused by the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans, as well as manmade or induced phenomena, such as ship/submarine hydrodynamic effects. The research also includes theory, laboratory, and field experiments leading to ground-based, airborne, and space-based systems for use in such areas as environmental remote sensing (including improved meteorological support systems for the operational Navy), astrometry, astrophysics, surveillance, and nonacoustic ASW. Special emphasis is given to developing space-based platforms and exploiting existing space systems.

The figures for calendar years 2012 and 2013 presented below represent the output of NRL facilities in Washington, DC; Bay St. Louis, Mississippi; and Monterey, California. In 1986, Congress enacted the Federal Technology Transfer Act in an effort to encourage the commercial use of technology developed in Federal laboratories. The Act allows Government inventors and the laboratories where they work to share the royalties generated by commercial licensing of their inventions. Also, the Act encourages the establishment of Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs) between laboratories such as NRL and non-Federal entities such as state and local governments, universities, and business corporations. Such cooperative R&D agreements can include the allocation in advance of patent rights on any inventions made under the joint research effort. The 1986 Act has given additional impetus to the Laboratory’s efforts to patent important inventions arising out of its various research programs.

Their objective is to enhance the quality of the Laboratory’s research activities through working associations and interchanges with highly capa ble scientists and engineers and to provide opportunities for outside scientists and engineers to work in the Navy laboratory environment. Along with enhancing the Laboratory’s research, these programs acquaint participants with Navy capabilities and concerns and may provide a path to full-time employment. Postdoctoral Research Associateships Every year, NRL hosts several postdoctoral research associates through the National Research Council (NRC) and American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) postdoctoral associateship and fellowship programs. These competitive positions provide postdoctoral scientists and engineers the opportunity to pursue research at NRL in collaboration with NRL scientists and engineers. Research associates are guest investigators, not employees of NRL. NRL/NRC Cooperative Research Associateship Program: The National Research Council conducts a national competition to recommend and make awards to outstanding scientists and engineers at recent postdoctoral levels for tenure as guest researchers at participating laboratories. The objectives of the NRC program are (1) to provide postdoctoral scientists and engineers of unusual promise and ability opportunities for research on problems, largely of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the sponsoring laboratories and (2) to contribute thereby to the overall efforts of the Federal laboratories. The program provides an opportunity for concentrated research in association with selected members of the permanent professional laboratory staff, often as a climax to formal career preparation. NRL/NRC Postdoctoral Associateships are awarded to persons who have held a doctorate less than five years at the time of application and are made initially for one year, renewable for a second and possible third year. Information and applications may be found at http://www. national-academies.org/rap. To contact NRL’s program coordinator, call (202) 404-7450 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. navy.mil. NRL/ASEE Postdoctoral Fellowship Program: The ASEE program is designed to significantly increase the involvement of creative and highly trained scientists and engineers from academia and industry in scientific and technical areas of interest and relevance to the Navy. Fellowship awards are based upon the technical quality and relevance of the proposed research, recommendations by the Navy laboratory, academic qualifications, reference reports, and availability of funds. NRL/ASEE Fellowship awards are made to persons who have held a doctorate for less than seven years at the time of application and are made for one year, renewable for a second and possible third year. Information and applications may be found at http://www.asee.org/nrl/. To contact NRL’s program coordinator, call (202) 404-7450 or email email@example.com.

Applicants must hold a teaching or research position at a U.S. college or university. Contact NRL’s program coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. The NRL/United States Naval Academy Cooperative Program for Scientific Interchange allows faculty members of the U.S. Naval Academy to participate in NRL research. This collaboration benefits the Academy by providing the opportunity for USNA faculty members to work on research of a more practical or applied nature. In turn, NRL’s research program is strengthened by the available scientific and engineering expertise of the USNA faculty. Contact NRL’s program coordinator at usna@hro. nrl.navy.mil. Professional Appointments Faculty Member Appointments use the special skills and abilities of faculty members for short periods to fill positions of a scientific, engineering, professional, or analytical nature at NRL. Consultants and experts are employed because they are outstanding in their fields of specialization or because they possess ability of a rare nature and could not normally be employed as regular civil servants. Intergovernmental Personnel Act Appointments temporarily assign personnel from state or local gov ernments or educational institutions to the Federal Government (or vice versa) to improve public services rendered by all levels of government. 129 Student Programs The student programs are tailored to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students to provide employment opportunities and work experience in naval research. The Naval Research Enterprise Intern Program (NREIP) is a ten-week summer research opportunity for undergraduate sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and graduate students. The Office of Naval Research (ONR) offers summer appointments at Navy laboratories to current college sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students from participating schools. Application is online at www.asee.org/nreip through the American Society for Engineering Education. Electronic applications are sent for evaluation to the point of contact at the Navy laboratory identified by the applicant. Contact NRL’s program coordinator at email@example.com. The National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship Program helps U.S. citizens obtain advanced training in disciplines of science and engineering critical to the U.S. Navy. The three-year program awards fellowships to recent outstanding graduates to support their study and research leading to doctoral degrees in specified disciplines such as electrical engineering, computer sciences, material sciences, applied physics, and ocean engineering. Award recipients are encouraged to continue their study and research in a Navy laboratory during the summer. Contact NRL’s program coordinator at (202) 404-7450 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Pathways Intern Program (formerly STEP and SCEP) provides students enrolled in a wide variety of educational institutions, from high school to graduate level, with opportunities to work at NRL and explore Federal careers while still in school and while getting paid for the work performed. Students can work full-time or part-time on a temporary or non-temporary appointment. Students must be continuously enrolled on at least a half-time basis at a qualifying educational institution and be at least 16 years of age. The primary focus of our Non-temporary intern appointment is to attract students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs in engineering, computer science, or the physical sciences. Students on non-temporary appointments are eligible to remain on their appointment until graduation and may be noncompetitively converted to a permanent appointment within 120 days after completion of degree requirements. Conversion is not guaranteed. Conversion is dependent on work performance, completion of at least 640 hours of work under the intern appointment before completion of degree requirements, and meeting the qualifications for the position. The Temporary intern appointment is initially a one year appointment. This program enables students to earn a salary while continuing their studies and offers them valuable work experience. NRL’s Pathways Intern Program opportunities are announced on USAJOBS four times per 130 year. Visit USAJOBS at https://www.usajobs.gov/ to create an account, search for jobs, set up an e-mail notification alert of when positions of interest are posted (see “Saved Searches”) and apply for our intern opportunities when posted.
