Abstract : This paper is an analysis of Joint Vision 2010 (JV 2010), the recently published guidance for future joint warfare, and its implications on ... From The Sea and Forward... From The Sea, the current naval strategic concept papers. The analysis will identify naval warfare imperatives relevant and integral to the success of JV 2010. JV 2010 was unveiled by General John M. Shalikashvili, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in the summer of 1996. JV 2010 provides a conceptual template that guides the development of our nation's Armed Forces in meeting the challenges of 2010 and beyond. In JV 2010, the Chairman recognizes that highly trained joint forces, enabled by advances in technology, are essential to future warfare. ... From The Sea and Forward... From The Sea, which preceded the Chairman's vision, also recognize the utility of integrated joint forces in future warfare. Naval forces have, however, oriented their focus on contributing to joint warfare by influencing events in and around the littorals and if necessary, by projecting combat power from the sea. In general, JV 2010 and the naval strategic concepts share a similar theme of dominating future adversaries across the full spectrum of military operations. Naval warfare imperatives, as defined in this paper, are those elements of future warfare implied by JV 2010 that are either unique to the naval service or need emphasis to equal the importance articulated in the vision. The imperatives identified in the paper are naval forward presence, sea control, sea basing, strategic sealift and joint education and training (emphasis needed). These elements are key to achieving the immediate, precise and decisive application of joint combat power articulated in JV 2010.
