Episode #39: Naval Research Laboratory -- Energy Research for Force Mobility

Oct. 14, 2009

Dr. Barry Spargo, head of the Chemical Dynamics and Diagnostics Branch at the Naval Research Laboratory, will discuss research options that show great promise for providing new sources of power and energy for force mobility and reducing dependence on domestic and foreign fuels. Energy is an essential component in the protection of vital interests in an interconnected and uncertain world. As global first responders, the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps rely on readily available, reliable sources of energy to perform a variety of missions, and the vulnerability of energy supplies could jeopardize naval forces' ability to support forces afloat and ashore. The Department of the Navy's energy strategy aims to decrease U.S. naval forces’ dependence on foreign fuel sources. Science and technology investments will provide many solutions.The appearance of advertising on this Web site, does not constitute endorsement by the (Department of Defense), of the products or services advertised on this site.
