Abstract : With the downfall of the Soviet Union and the decreased optempo of their submarine fleet, the Navy's MPA community has been underemployed in its traditional role, ASW. This paper examines the role of MPA in today's Navy and focuses on mission analysis, aircraft requirements and the necessary force structure for both the present and the future. It also examines how the MPA community fits within the new National Military Strategy and offers several key recommendations to improve readiness.
