This paper analyzes whether the United States Navys vision of Sea Power 21 can support the Major Combat Operations Joint Operating Concept MCO JOC. The analysis focuses on whether Sea Power 21 and the pillars thereof ForceNet, Sea Strike, Sea Shield, and Sea Basing support the specified tasks of the MCO JOC Functional Area Capabilities to include Command and Control Capabilities, Battlespace Awareness Capabilities, Force Application Capabilities, Focused Logistics Capabilities, and Protection Capabilities. The analysis concludes that Sea Power 21 and its supporting pillars lack the doctrinal backing to support the MCO JOC. Recommendations include crafting Sea Power 21 as a joint endeavor as well as developing coordinating Sea Power 21 doctrine to support future joint warfighting.
