The U.S. Navy has approved the Undersea Domain Operating Concept (UDOC) to ensure undersea safety capabilities.
The UDOC describes how expanded use of the undersea domain contributes to cross-domain synergy, providing significant joint warfighting advantages. It provides a conceptual framework from which senior military leaders can better recognize and employ the effects and capabilities of undersea forces in joint warfighting.
The concept explores several specific contributions of undersea maneuver as well as some enabling capabilities that will support expanded use of the undersea domain.
An accompanying action plan sets the stage for more detailed products including integrating and enabling concepts and concepts of operation that inform future doctrine and tactics, techniques and procedures.
"As a maritime nation, our economy depends upon open commercial sea lanes, and our national security - and that of our allies - increasingly depends upon the advantages we enjoy in the undersea domain," said Rear Adm. Scott Jerabek, commander, NWDC. "The Undersea Domain Operating Concept offers new ways for preserving our freedom of action in the undersea domain."
