Abstract : The study into the knowledge and experience required for optimum performance by officers assigned to operational, R+D, and managerial duties in Anti-submarine Warfare concludes that oceanography should receive the major emphasis in an interdisciplinary graduate level program of the contributing disciplines in ASW. In planning education and training for officers in ASW and other oceanography-related duties the total Service experience should be considered. Oceanography graduate curricula are recommended which will provide knowledge for developing careers of three categories of officers who respectively will: 'specialize' in ASW; become special duty 'environmentalists'; and serve in technical management assignments. Billets are identified for each of these categories. (Author)
