Navy doctrine shaped by history

Voice: This lesson has traced the role of airpower in the evolution of the Navy’s mission and related doctrine. Shaped by its history, the Navy has often held written guidance suspect, but learned well its main missions of sea control and power projection. With the advent of aircraft and traumatic events like Pearl Harbor, the Navy has made airpower an integral part of both its offensive and defensive operations within its warfighting critical operational capabilities of battlespace dominance and power projection. With the end of the Cold War, the Navy committed itself to the joint team with the recognition that many joint objectives lie ashore. The components of Sea Power 21: Sea Strike; Sea Shield; Sea Basing; and the C4I capabilities of Force Net all capitalize on air and space forces to enhance the Navy’s contribution to the joint force.
