Abstract:

This document presents the Department of the Navy DON Exploratory Development 6.2 Investment Strategy, which establishes the focus and major thrusts of the 6.2 Program. The Navys investment strategy for its exploratory development activities is derived from a national security strategy that mandates continued fulfillment of U.S. responsibilities in both Europe and Asia. In addition, the changing world environment will increase our responsibilities with respect to Third World nations. Successful implementation of U.S. strategy presumes that our naval forces will maintain technical superiority in their weaponry and platforms. As such, our warfighting strategy is achievable only if our nation maintains its current technological leadership. The Soviet Unions quantitative advantages and qualitative advances in space, submarine warfare, cruise missiles, and electronic warfare are tangible evidence that our ability to maintain a technological edge clearly is being challenged. Proliferation of high technology will continue to expand on the world arms market and will become prevalent in the Third World. Therefore, the requirement to maintain technological superiority remains absolutely essential.rwj
