NWDC/CRUSER Warfare Innovation Workshop
This NWDC/CRUSER sponsored Warfare Innovation Workshop (WIW) is scheduled for 22-25 September 2014 as a Naval Postgraduate School Enrichment Week activity to explore "Warfighting in the Contested Littorals."
Background: The first NPS Innovation Seminar supported the CNO sponsored Leveraging the Undersea Environment war game in February 2009. Since that time, warfare innovation workshops have been requested by various sponsors to address self-propelled semi-submersibles, maritime irregular challenges, undersea weapons concepts and unmanned systems concepts generation. Participants in these workshops involved junior officers from NPS and the fleet, early career engineers from Navy laboratories, and CNO Strategic Studies Group (SSG) Director Fellows.
Workshop Design: This NWDC/CRUSER WIW will take advantage of the innovation lessons learned in previous workshops and will be designed to include the following:
- Knowledge leveling briefs, followed by team break outs for two days of concept generation; and ending with a morning of final briefs to NWDC, the NPS Chair of Warfare Innovation, and CRUSER leadership.
- Workshop is open to all US NPS students - all curriculums, all services.
