AUSN is proud to present Admiral John M. Richardson’s “Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority 2.0” which details his plan for the Navy in 2019 and beyond.
Admiral Richardson’s plan is that the United States Navy will be ready to conduct prompt and sustained combat incident to operations at sea. Our Navy will protect America from attack, promote American prosperity, and preserve America’s strategic influence. U.S. naval operations—from the seafloor to space, from the blue water to the littorals, and in the information domain—will deter aggression and enable resolution of crises on terms acceptable to the United States and our allies and partners. If deterrence fails, the Navy will conduct decisive combat operations to defeat any enemy.
