Since 1882, ONI has transformed to deliver world-class intelligence to decision makers, warfighters, allies, and partners in the most critical moments in history. At each stage of ONI’s storied past, we adapted to meet the security environment of the time. Once again, the world demands ONI transform.


This modern era of strategic competition makes ONI’s mission to deeply understand our adversaries and deliver decision advantage now more relevant than ever. That meant a thoughtful and deliberate assessment of ONI’s missions, resources, and personnel to ensure continued decision advantage for the Navy and Nation.


We are now in the implementation phases of what we are calling “Transformation 2022,” a major renovation that allows us to shift our talent and treasure to priority areas that will enable us to do more against our strategic competitors. This is the biggest renovation since 2009 and will improve our mission effectiveness and analytic output while streamlining our operations. In short, it allows us to do fewer things better.
