This paper examines the role of land-based air power within a national maritime strategy. Corbett taught that naval strategy is a subsidiary aspect of a national maritime strategy and the increasing speed, range, and accuracy of aircraft, weapons, detection, and communications ensure that an important part of maritime air control will be land-based. To evaluate that claim, this paper examines the unity of sea control and air control examines the Air Force missions which affect sea control discusses the strategic concerns directing land-based air in maritime strategy and explains why joint strategic doctrine will better integrate our military forces.
