Abstract : In... From the Sea and Forward... From the Sea, the Secretary of the Navy, The Chief of Naval Operations, and the Commandant of the Marine Corps set the strategic direction for Naval Services into the 21st century. The strategy places an unprecedented emphasis on the ability to operate in the littoral environment; that is, those regions relating to or existing on a shore or coastal region, within direct control of and vulnerable to the striking power of Naval Expeditionary Forces (NEFs). This strategy requires the development of new approaches to self-sustaining naval operations and future Navy/Marine Corps capabilities. This broad multifunction, joint, and complex concept is expeditionary warfare. This issue of the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) Technical Digest focuses on expeditionary warfare and the enabling technologies that support that concept (Figure 1).
