Abstract : RMAs consist of technological advances, operational innovation, and organizational adaptation which combine to transition to a new form of warfare. OMFTS is a new concept which applies the principles of maneuver warfare to maritime power protection. This paper asks whether OMFTS is an appropriate concept for exploiting new technology, what changes need to be made, organizational implications, and recommendations for implementation. With a few changes, OMFTS can leverage the new technology associate with RMA for Naval operations. Combined with CWC and Battlespace Dominance, OMFTS can provide a compelling vision for employment of Naval Forces. (MM)
