Abstract:

The United States armed forces and its coalition partners need to embrace and develop Joint Seabasing due to increasingly difficult political relations and a reduced number of friendly facilities in order to successfully fight future wars and fulfill the full spectrum dominance requirements of Joint Vision 2020. This study seeks to explore what Seabasing is, while also determining if it would improve the current capabilities of the United States Military. This document also seeks to fully understand the concept of Joint Seabasing as defined by the Joint Integrated Concept and determine whether the capabilities presented meet the requirements of the Joint Vision 2020 report. Aspects of Seabasing have been utilized by United States Naval forces throughout its history with great success, but the concept has been expanded by the United States Navy to be one leg of a triad of maritime power projection. The concept has been further expanded by the Joint Integrated Concept nC to include all of Department of Defense forces and coalition allies to bring the concept to the forefront of warfighting.
