The Department of the Navy maintains a vigorous science and technology (S&T) research program
in those areas that are critically important to ensuring U.S. naval superiority in the maritime environment.
A number of these areas depend largely on sustained Navy Department investments for their
health, strength, and growth. One such area is naval hydromechanics, that is, the study of the hydrodynamic
and hydroacoustic performance of Navy ships, submarines, underwater vehicles, and weapons.
Identifying an agile and adaptable acquisition process that can field new information technology capabilities and services in relatively short and responsive time frames is a pressing issue for the U.S. Navy. Damaging malware can mutate within hours or days, requiring a defense that is sufficiently
When the walk-through is complete, the employer should
organize and analyze the data so that it may be efficiently used in
determining the proper types of PPE required at the worksite. The
employer should become aware of the different types of PPE
available and the levels of protection offered. It is definitely a good
idea to select PPE that will provide a level of protection greater than
the minimum required to protect employees from hazards.

In November 1998, the U.S. Navy (USN) asked RAND for assistance in determining why funding for ongoing military specifications and standards reform (MSSR) efforts in the Navy appeared to be inadequate for the task, and in light of that answer, to describe some likely options for funding and completing the MSSR task. In response, we collected data from and held discussions with various Department of Defense (DoD)
