The Assistant Deputy Chief of Naval Operations, Manpower and Personnel, requested CNA examine the implications of technological change for Navy manpower. This paper addresses the changes that are likely to occur in the type of sailor the Navy needs as a result of new ship and aircraft maintenance and the changes likely to occur in the civilian population. It also examines how Navy workforce management policies may have to change due to these changes in technology, required skills, and civilian labor markets. The paper concludes that technological advances will most likely require a more skilled workforce. In particular, the Navy will need sailors who understand the general principles in their area of expertise, are technically literate, and have strong problem-solving, decision-making, and communication skills.
