Abstract : Current operational planning does not incorporate the use of combat salvage for wartime operations. Historically, Task Force Commanders, both Naval and Joint, have lacked support in the salvage mission area. Given the present naval assets and capabilities, operational commanders must realize that combat salvage is an additional weapon which, when properly utilized, allows the commander maximum efficiency of force. Probable scenarios for Naval Presence and Crisis Response operations make salvage missions increasingly likely and important. Today's Naval Component Commander must be able to understand the complexity of the planning and the organization required to conduct these salvage missions in modern operational environments. To achieve this end, there needs to be modification in staff organization and, operational planning methodology, naval planning publications changes (to include doctrinal publications) and salvage asset assignment within task groups.
