Abstract:

Naval forces are unique in their contribution to the nations defense. Versatile naval expeditionary forces are the nations first responders, relied upon to establish the tempo of action, control the early phases of hostilities, and set conditions for decisive resolution. Americas ability to protect its homeland, assure its friends and allies, deter potential adversaries, and project decisive combat power depends on maritime superiority. The transformation of naval forces is dedicated to greatly expanding the sovereign options available worldwide to the President across the full spectrum of warfare by exploiting U.S. control of the sea. The result of this transformation will be a Navy-Marine Corps Team providing sustainable, immediately employable U.S. combat power as part of a transformed joint force ready to meet any challenge. As directed in the Defense Secretarys Transformation Planning Guidance, the Department of the Navy presents its first annual update to the Naval Transformation Road map. Whereas the first roadmap submission in July 2002 described the framework for naval capability development, this roadmap update describes the key naval concepts, capabilities, initiatives, processes, and programs that guide the efforts of the Navy-Marine Corps Team in support of the critical operational goals described in the 2001 Quadrennial Defense Review Report and the new joint operating and functional concepts currently being formulated.
