Section 1067 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 Appendix 1 directed the Secretary of Defense to conduct three independent studies, to include one by the Navy. To meet that requirement, the Chief of Naval Operations directed the Deputy Director of the Chief of Naval Operations, Assessment Division N81 to lead a Navy Project Team that also included participants from the Office of Net Assessment within the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division, the Naval Postgraduate School, the U.S. Naval War College, the Center for Naval Analyses, and other Navy Fleet and Headquarters staff personnel.1 This dedicated, Navy Project Team was given guidance and wide latitude to develop an analysis that was a distinct excursion not constrained by current Navy submissions. As such, the Project Team study does not represent any official Navy position, but just another independent approach to the problem. The Navy Project Team postulated that the U.S. will continue to provide strong and sustained leadership for a rules-based international order that promotes global security and prosperity through the 2030s. To support this leadership role, the Navy Project Team identified the key missions for the U.S. Navy protecting the homeland building security globally establishing sea control projecting power winning decisively.
