The mission of the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) is to reduce the total ownership cost and improve the capabilities of both United States government and U.S.-flag commercial ships.

The program accomplishes this mission by providing a collaborative framework to manage, focus, develop, and share research and development and leverage best practices in shipbuilding and ship repair.
