Abstract:

The Quadrennial Defense Review, Commission on Future Defense, National Defense Panel, and other efforts have reviewed and projected the security environment and force requirements that will make the military effective in the 21st century. The Navy has been leading that revolution by disengaging from Cold War thinking and redirecting its systems and procurement in support of Forward . . . from the Sea. Unfortunately, this shift brings risks to critical programs--particularly countermine operations--which, if not corrected, could be tragic in the event of war.
