- Richard Fong, Senior Research Scientist, Warhead Technology, US Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center, Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey
Richard Fong will speak about the Army’s current and future R&D needs for armament technologies for land, air, and sea operations. Focus areas include precision-guided munitions (also known as “smart” ammunition and weapon systems), scalable and extended-range munitions, kinetic and nonlethal systems, and directed-energy systems among other topics. ORNL technologies that interest the Army include advanced energy and enhanced propulsion science, advances in strong lightweight materials, additive manufacturing processes, computing and data analytics, modeling and simulation tools, sensors to identify and defeat complex targets, technology to counter land mines, unmanned autonomous systems, logistics automation, and related technologies.
The Global Security Directorate invites all interested ORNL staff to attend. A group of researchers and engineers from the US Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center, whose slogan is to carry out their work “like someone’s life depends on what we do,” will be available to answer questions.
