Chief of Naval Operations Provides New Strategic Approach – Navigation Plan 2021

CNO NAVPLAN 2021 was released by the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), ADM GILDAY, on 11 JAN. This Navigation Plan is basically the execution plan of the Advantages at Sea Tri-Service Maritime Strategy released last month.  The Navy examines their current challenges and lays out four focus priorities: readiness, capabilities, capacity and Sailors.  It begins by setting a grim tone: “our collective security – and our way of life – are under threat”.  It calls out China and Russia as “determined rivals” who’s flagrant disregard of international rules of conduct on the open seas indicate they will never become responsible partners.  This plan supports the Naval Service’s mission to  “deploy forward to defend America and our allies and protect freedom of the seas”.
