This notice of meeting is provided in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App. 2). All sessions of the meeting will be devoted to discussions of basic and advanced research and associated science and technology opportunities with respect to concepts and science and technology (S&T) initiatives, including those in the space, atmospheric, surface and subsurface environments, required to achieve the visions of FORCEnet and Sea Power 21; alternative approaches to technology acquisition that could be implemented within the Department of the Navy's acquisition system; and, initiatives required to produce a militarily effective Naval electromagnetic (EM) gun system. These briefings and discussions will contain proprietary information and classified information that is specifically authorized under criteria established by Executive Order to be kept secret in the interest of national defense and are in fact properly classified pursuant to such Executive Order. The proprietary, classified and non-classified matters to be discussed are so inextricably intertwined as to preclude opening any portion of the meeting. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. App. 2, section 10(d), the Secretary of the Navy has determined in writing that the public interest requires that all sessions of the meeting be closed to the public because they will be concerned with matters listed in 5 U.S.C. section 552b(c)(1) and (4).
