US Navy works on hybrid fleet of manned and unmanned platforms
U.S. Navy Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Mike Gilday announced the publication of his Fleet Navigation Plan during a virtual speech at the Surface Navy Association Symposium.
During the symposium, Adm. Gilday made significant remarks. He stressed that the U.S. is a maritime nation and that its operations at sea are very important for the country's protection and stability.
The USA should be perfectly prepared for missions and work in every sea to outline the modernization activities of the navies of China and Russia (all-domain naval force).
"This Navigation Plan nests under the recently-released Tri-Service Maritime Strategy and outlines how the U.S. Navy will grow its naval power to control the seas and project power across all domains, both now and in the future. It builds off the progress made under FRAGO and lays out what must be done this decade to deliver the naval power America needs to compete and win," article says.
“For 245 years, in both calm and rough waters, our Navy has stood the watch to protect the homeland, preserve freedom of the seas, and defend our way of life. The decisions and investments we make this decade will set the maritime balance of power for the rest of this century. We can accept nothing less than success," said Gilday.
