The U.S. Navy has created a new process to move naval technologies through the prototyping and demonstration phases faster than usual, Federal News Radio reported Friday.

Jared Serbu writes the military service established four warfighter development centers that will employ science advisers to help coordinate testing of maritime aviation and undersea, surface and expeditionary warfare platforms in real-life settings.

“It’s a new organizational methodology to get our programs into those exercises and it’s part of the chief of naval operations’ push to get things wet sooner,” Rear Adm. Mathias Winter told an audience at a Center for Strategic and International Studies-hosted forum.

Winter noted the Navy currently prioritizes electric weaponry, underwater dominance and directed energy research programs, according to Federal News Radio.

The military branch is also interested in developing offensive tools for electronic warfare as well as wireless spectrum utilization methods, Serbu reports.
