The role of the U.S. Navy in support of the national strategy for maritime security

The National Strategy for Maritime Security is a relatively recent plan for employing America's finite assets and capabilities to secure the maritime domain from vulnerability to terrorist attacks and to enhance the nation's overall protection. In an effort to bring the maritime capabilities of the United States Navy to bear, systematic utilization of naval forces in support of maritime security is an area which requires additional integration. The intent of this paper is to examine the Strategy for Maritime Security, analyze the current means available, use current Chief of Naval Operations guidance and policies in relation to the mission, and determine a path for the future employment of naval forces. Short term, as well as long term, solutions will be discussed and the implications for the Navy will be determined. Specifically, manpower requirements, force structure, training requirements, and the impact to current vision, missions, principles, tasks, and objectives will be analyzed.
