11 Five roles of the US Navy Projection of power from sea to landSea control and maritime supremacyStrategic DeterrenceStrategic SealiftForward Naval Presence
12 Projection of power from sea to land ObjectivesDeliver and support troops ashoreSecure land from the enemyDestroy offensive capability of opponentHarassment/Intimidation
13 Projection of power from sea to land TacticsAmphibious assaultNaval bombardmentTactical air projectionSSBN deterrent patrol
14 Projection of power from sea to land Forces used in power projectionMarinesCarrier air wingsNaval bombardment (used to with BB’s)Cruise missiles (Tomahawk)
15 Sea Control and Maritime Supremacy ObjectivesMaintain use of the sea while denying its use to the enemy.Control SLOC’sEnsure industrial supply lines remain openReinforce/resupply military forces overseasProvide wartime economic/military supplies to alliesProvide safety for naval forces projecting power ashore
16 Sea Control and Maritime Supremacy TacticsSortie control“Intercept” the enemy in port through blockadeChoke point controlUse geographic choke points to hinder enemyOpen-area operationsseek out and neutralize enemy on the open oceanLocal engagement
17 Sea Control and Maritime Supremacy Forces used in sea controlCarrier air wingsSurface combatantsAttack subsMines
18 Strategic Deterrence Objectives Deter all-out attack on US or allies To pose the threat of unacceptable losses to a potential aggressorTo maintain a stable international political environment
19 Strategic Deterrence Background Navy is responsible for one part of the nuclear triadUS Strategic Command with B-1’s, B-2’sLand-based missiles (MX, Minuteman, Midgetman)Seagoing nuclear-powered, fleet-ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs)With the end of the Cold War, SSBNs are the primary mode of deterrence today.
20 Strategic Deterrence Tactics Assured second strike Controlled response Trident missile - 4,000+ mile range. 24 per subSubmarine is a survivable and credible deterrentControlled responseAttack plans can be changed in case of partial attack.CVN, Tomahawk strike capabilityDeter Third-World powersMaintain balance of power
21 Strategic Sealift Objective To deliver U.S. (and allied) forces and sustaining supplies to any part of the world whenever needed
22 Strategic Sealift Tactics Prepositioning Surge Sustainment Allows U.S. to place fuel, ammunition, etc. near crisis areas for deliverySurgeInitial deployment of U.S.-based equipment and supplies in support of a contingencySustainmentTransport of re-supply cargo to stay abreast of force consumption rates and build up reserves
23 Forward Naval Presence ObjectivesTo deter actions not in the interests of the United States or its alliesTo encourage actions that are in the interests of the United States or its allies
33 Mission of the US Naval Reserve Primary:To provide trained units and qualified individuals for active duty in time of war or national emergency and at other times required by national securitySecondary:Assist active force in accomplishing its peacetime mission as a by-product of training for mobilization
34 Total Force ConceptIncludes all the resources available to perform national defense missions.Budgetary constraints do not allow for an active force capable of handling all contingencies.Reserve training MUST be meaningful and mobilization enhancing.
