1 Game Changing Innovations Rear Admiral Wendi Carpenter, USN Commander, Navy Warfare Development Command 10 March th Annual Security Summit San Diego, CA Navy Warfare Development Command: Delivering Capability for Today & Tomorrow Navy Warfare Development Command: Delivering Capability for Today & Tomorrow

2 Game Changing Innovations 2 The Imperatives  Demographics  2.2 Billion people live within 100 km of coast  Geography  Over 70% of the earth’s surface is water  Access issues and maneuver space – international waters  Vital Sea Lines of Communication (SLOCs)  Straights of Hormuz, Malacca, Suez Canal, etc…  Global economy / commerce  Intertwined economies  World's fleets carry around 90% of global exports - $8.9 trillion (2004)  10,000 oil tankers ship 60% of the world’s petroleum  Navies  Over 30 nations have navies with “global reach”  160 nations have some navy, coast guard, maritime police capability  Over 6300 warships worldwide

3 Security in the Maritime Environment  A key for global stability, especially uninterrupted economic stability, commerce  Dependence on the maritime environment increasing  Sustain global economy  Significant increase in areas of strategic focus  Evolving / irregular security environment that demands increased Maritime Domain Awareness  Requires capable Navies with forward presence for deterrence and security operations  Security requires building partnerships: the best joint, coalition, interagency, as well as commercial integration  Information sharing  Governance  Awareness and understanding of core missions and capability Game Changing Innovations

4 The Global Economy by Sea Key Point of Interest Trading & Resource SLOC Game Changing Innovations

5 The Challenge of Scope and Scale

6 Game Changing Innovations 6 Our Strategic Environment: The “New Normal”  Globalization  Interdependence of global economies  Security and prosperity are interlinked  Trans-national threats increased and unchecked in some areas  Increasingly irregular and uncertain operating environment  Potential threats to our mutual interests  Use of the seas for illicit activities  Trafficking  Piracy  HADR missions (Haiti, Tsunami relief, Pakistan earthquake)  May not have the luxury of time – “Come as you are”  Requires Maritime Domain Awareness  To include across ‘areas of responsibility” for military commanders  Capability and capacity must be maintained in spite of fiscal realities and constraints  Emerging technologies offer new and innovative solutions for capability or capacity shortfalls  Importance of “concepts” in how to view the strategic landscape and address the challenges and opportunities

7 Core Capabilities Concept Generation/ Development Proactively works future Navy resource and operational requirements CONOPS Development Describes how a particular concept may be employed to achieve desired objectives Wargaming/Experimentation/Sea Trial Develops campaign plans and coordinates resources to enhance the Fleet’s warfare capabilities Analysis Performs in-depth analysis of large scale exercises and experiments Doctrine Development Develops enduring products and principles and provides input into Joint, multi-service, and Coalition Doctrine Modeling & Simulation Provides a cost efficient way to train Naval forces through Fleet Synthetic Training (FST) Lessons Learned Collaborates with the Fleet and other services to provide observations and best practices Navy Warfare Development Command

8 NWDC’s Role in Navy Concepts  Navy Warfare Development Command: CNO Executive Agent  Collaborative with key organizations internal to Navy (Strategic Studies Group and Navy War College, as well as Fleets  Collaborative with external partners  Focus near, mid and far term concepts  Spectrum of solutions, not just technology  Lynchpin for integration / holistic approach  Culture of Innovation/ New Ideas  Art of the Possible  Thinking outside the box  Shifting paradigms Game Changing Innovations

9 A Balanced Approach SEC GATES: “…what programs are necessary to deter aggression, project power when necessary, and protect our interests and allies around the globe.” 06 APR 2009  Technology and material solutions are relevant to today’s challenges and the future; BUT just one aspect of delivering power and capability  Concept generation and development provides capability through full spectrum across DOTMLPF  Doctrine, Organization, Training, Material, Logistics, Personnel, Facilities  Development of doctrine for linking with other services and nations, key to maximizing our collective capability Credible shields are created by forging partnerships and mutual understanding - doctrine and technology represent the practical manifestation of that effort

10 Game Changing InnovationsTakeaways  Dependence on the maritime environment is growing; requires increased cooperation  Security and prosperity linked  Sustain global economy and protect SLOCs  Sealift for military support and HADR efforts  It’s all about the best joint & coalition integration  Evolving security environment demands extensive Maritime Domain Awareness and processes / procedures to maintain advantage

13 “There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. Because the innovator has for enemies all those who have done well under the old conditions, and lukewarm defenders in those who may do well under the new. This coolness arises partly from the fear of opponents, who have the laws on their side and partly from the incredulity of men, who do not readily believe in the new things until they have long experienced them.” - Machiavelli Applicable Dead Man Quote Game Changing Innovations
