Abstract : The arsenal ship concept combines new and emerging technologies into a new type of naval platform capable of massive offensive firepower. Concentrating hundreds of advanced weapons in one platform will provide the Joint Force Commander with a potent yet simple instrument for mass, maneuver and precision fires, as well as a credible deterrence prior to the onset of armed conflict. When measured against Joint Vision 2010, the Navy's Arsenal ship Concept of Operations supports an effective joint fighting force for the early 21st century in most areas. More development is needed, however, in the areas of full dimensional protection and command structure for the ship in the joint force. The arsenal ship's potential contribution to joint warfighting compels the most rigorous efforts to make the most efficient and effective use of this platform and protect it from the threats of future enemies.
