In his first interview, Klunder joined The Federal Drive with Tom Temin to discuss how the Naval Research Program works with the other armed services and his research priorities are for the Navy.
Klunder said his command has taken a “real strong strategic scrub of our objectives” and aligned those goals with DoD overall.
He added naval research will look at “any game-changing, leap-ahead innovative technologies” while balancing the need to adapt current technologies to serve the “airmen, marines, sailors who are out there right now.”
