Abstract : This essay is intended to address a range of options in which naval power may be applied in support of national objectives across the spectrum of conflict. The options outlined are offered within the context of the threat and its military potential versus a statement of U.S. interests and attendant national military strategy. The essay assumes that naval forces posses utility not only in the deterrence of conflict but can also be applied to the attainment of strategic and tactical objectives during both the conduct of military operations and termination of hostilities. Finally, the essay suggests that an effective naval campaign can best be prosecuted within the parameters set forth in the current version of the Department of the Navy's Maritime Strategy; a brief description of which is included therein.
