U.S. Navy Capstone Strategies

U.S. Navy Capstone Strategies

CNA has a long history of assisting in the development of U.S. Navy capstone strategy, policy, and concept documents. During the 2005-2007 development of A Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower (CS 21), the Navy asked for a comprehensive analysis of its recent record in creating and implementing these documents.

This effort was extended through 2010, not only to assist in the development of CS 21, but also the Naval Operations Concept, Naval Doctrine Publication 1, and a series of Navy Strategic Plans. Numerous interim briefings, reports, and extracts were circulated and used throughout the study period. This collection represents the final product of CNA’s analysis and covers not only the documents themselves, but also the political, economic, and military context within which they were formulated, organized by decade since 1970.
