Abstract:

Operational Maneuver From the Sea OMFTS provides the Marine Corps vision for conducting 21st-century naval expeditionary operations. This vision, which seeks to exploit the sea as maneuver space, involves projecting naval expeditionary forces and power directly from the sea onto operational objectives well inland, obviating the traditional need to first seize and secure a beachhead and build up a support base ashore before pushing out to accomplish inland operational objectives.
