Abstract:

The Navy is implementing or experimenting with new kinds of naval formations, more flexible forward-deployment schedules, forward-homeporting additional Navy ships, and long-duration deployments with crew rotation which the Navy calls Sea Swap. These changes, which form a key part of Navy transformation, raise several potential issues for Congress. This report will be updated as events warrant.
