The Naval Research Advisory Committee (NRAC) will meet to discuss classified information from government organizations. All sessions of the meetings, except the NRAC Security, Ethics, and Travel Brief on Tuesday, December 5, 2006 from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., will be devoted to briefings, discussions, and technical examinations of issues related to maritime strategy and Department of the Navy plans, programs, and objectives. It is envisioned that these discussions will enable the NRAC to identify technology gaps where additional science and technology investments may be needed to satisfy current and projected Navy and Marine Corps requirements.
Naval Research Advisory Committee,
This notice is provided in accordance with
the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App. 2).
All sessions of the meetings, except the NRAC Security, Ethics, and
Travel Brief on Tuesday, December 5, 2006 from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.,
will be devoted to executive sessions that will include discussions and
technical examinations of information related to forthcoming NRAC
studies. These briefings and discussions will contain classified
information that is specifically authorized under criteria established
by Executive Order to remain classified in the interest of national
defense and are properly classified pursuant to such Executive Order.
The classified and nonclassified matters to be discussed are so
inextricably intertwined as to preclude opening any portions of the
meetings. 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, with the exception
of the NRAC Security, Ethics, and Travel Brief on Tuesday, December 5,
2006 from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., be closed to the public because the
sessions will be concerned with matters listed in 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(1) and (4).
Dated: November 20, 2006.
Lieutenant Commander, Judge Advocate General's Corps, U.S. Navy, Federal Register Liaison Officer.
