Abstract : The Naval Command, Control and Ocean Surveillance Center RDT&E Division, or NRaD, Command History for calendar year (CY) 96 is submilled in conformance with OPNAVINST 5750.12E. The history provides a permanent record of CY 96 activities at NRaD. Although the history covers one calendar year, much of the information was only available on a fiscal year (FY) basis and is so noted in the text. The history is divided into two main sections. The first section gives an introduction to NRaD and describes developments in organization, personnel, and funding. The second section documents technical programs underway during 1996. Because the results of scientific work often develop out of many years' effort, programs are not always documented annually. Previous command histories provide extensive background articles on many major programs. When possible, background articles are prepared for new or previously untreated programs. By consulting command histories written over a period of several years, a reader can follow the broad thrusts of Division research and development. In this year's History, background articles appear as featured programs in Calendar Year 1996 Highlights. These articles were originally printed in the NRaD Outlook (JoAnne Newton, Editor). Appendices to this document provide supplementary Command information. Appendix A lists achievement awards given in CY 96. Appendix B lists patents awarded in CY 96. Appendices C and D provide lists of distinguished visitors hosted by NRaD and major conferences and meetings at NRaD, respectively.
