Abstract : Joint and naval doctrine published in the wake of the Goldwater-Nichols Act of 1986 does not sufficently address Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW). ASW must assume an integral role in the Joint Vision 2010 precepts of operational force protection and battlespace dominance. The global proliferation of diesel submarines capable of conducting sea denial operations in the littoral, and the continued production and employment of Russian nuclear submarines, have generated renewed interest in anti-submarine warfare. To sustain and swiftly project joint forces into and across the littoral will require that U. S. joint force commanders be prepared to quickly neutralize the submarine threat. ASW must, therefore, be fully integrateable into the joint force that will simultaneously conduct the operational protection missions of missile defense, air defense and mine warfare. The Navy, as the ASW core competency leader, needs to develop an ASW vision statement and corresponding naval and joint doctrine. Such doctrine will serve to guide joint ASW force procurement, training and employment in accordance with the tenants outlined in Joint Vision 2010.
