Abstract:

Evolving anti-ship ballistic missiles are enhancing the effectiveness of anti-access A2 strategies, which seek to keep opposing forces out of an operating area. This may reduce the effectiveness of legacy U.S. Navy operational principles, which rely on large, multi-ship carrier strike groups. In response, the Navy created an offensive principle known as distributed lethality DL that would allow warships to project power within an A2 environment. DL calls for smaller, agile, and lethal combinations of ships, called adaptive force packages AFPs, which operate in a distributed manner over a large area.
