Richard Carlin, head of the Office of Naval Research’s Sea Warfare & Weapons Department, joins Francis Rose to discuss ONR’s new problem-solving strategy, and its origins in Silicon Valley startups.


The new Naval Innovation Process Adoption program is the Navy’s attempt to adopt some of Silicon Valley’s innovation culture. Based on the H4X problem-solving framework, NIPA is aiming to solve some of the long-standing issues affecting sailors and marines. Richard Carlin, head of the Office of Naval Research’s Sea Warfare & Weapons Department, says that by “hacking” problem-solving, the program will energize the way the Navy innovates. “When we say hacking, people say ‘Oh it’s that computer stuff again.’ It’s not. What I tell people is that hacking means breaking down the bigger problems into something that is manageable [and] that we can address with those technologies,” said Carlin. “Most importantly it goes out and talks to the warfighters, the operators, the resource sponsors and brings everyone together, and realize that this is a viable solution to meet the actual true needs and very importantly the process is designed to carry all the way forward to delivery.”
