Admiral Vernon Clark gave many of his statements regarding US Navy, in which he declares that “The 21st Century sets the stage for tremendous increases in naval precision, reach and connectivity, ushering in a new era of joint operational effectiveness. Innovative concepts and technologies will integrate sea, land, air, space and cyberspace to a greater extent than ever before. In this unified battle space, the sea will provide a vast maneuver area from which to project direct and decisive power around the globe. ” (Hans J. Massaquoi, 2007)
In this era United State Navy has touched the highest point by exploiting all the innovative technologies, by putting there intense effort and time in every aspects. They provide their working class best incentives so they will perform their task in a proper manner and provide their extremist services; Clark Realty Capital and Lincoln Property Company work mutually for the Department of the Navy and continue to redevelop family housing using smart growth principles. In year 1997 The Navy Operational Concept (NOC) was published, to boost the ongoing progression of innovation and adaptation in littoral warfare.
US Navy also boosted their services by forming a department of shipbuilding, which plan a delicate nuclear and surface fighter industrial base that comprises the suppliers and shipbuilders that offer equipment and engineering services, which sustain Navy shipbuilding programs. These steps are taken to ensure the long lasting visibility of shipbuilding industries in order to support the future Construction programs of US Navy. US Navy is practicing over a variety of unique programs to enhance existing air and cruise missile defenses and facilitate them with robust, multi-layer missile defense.
US Navy also promotes spiritual, religious, moral, and personal well being by ministry to naval workers and their family members as well. Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and the U. S. Navy mutually completed the task successfully by providing a major update to Standard Missile-2 (SM-2), this development was declared as "Maneuverability improvement” having SM-2 with considerably increased performance which are introduced against ground-breaking, anti-ship weapons while transporting increased ability to the war fighter.
This Company, with 2006 sales of $20. 3 billion, is fundamentally known as a technology leader specializing in defense. Raytheon facilitates US Navy by state-of-the-art electronics, missions systems, having command over communication systems and on many more services as well. US Navy also has made significant advances in its Technologies and purchasing 512 processor, it also signed a contract valued at $18 million for ccNUMA with SGI, which is the equipment of supercomputing that will result in increasing computing power.
When that installation was performed in year 2001, US Navy got multiple next-generation SGI SN supercomputers. Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy in his speech gave his statement “Every Navy leader, at every level, must take an active role in growing & developing other Sailors. No matter what your rank or job may be, you have an opportunity to lead” (Scott Shuger, 1999) This ongoing process of development and remote targeting technologies by US Navy is a challenging task to accomplish.
In this Era, the US Navy faces the challenges of submarine which is much more an intricate issue than it was during the “cold war. ” Formation of submarine technologies is the most considerable challenge facing in 21st century. In order to resolve their naval challenges United States came up with a strategic command in order to provide a unified resource to easily understand threats and gave rapid response to such threats. We can wrap up our document by comparing and stating that from the time when this naval system initiated and now things are very different in every manner.
Now human systems have become the vital element in the Navy, each and every strategy, technology, laws and preparation are within a human system integration focus. Naval system contributes mutually with service-unique capabilities. Government had supported naval system in every manner and with this support and help naval transformation will be accomplished through new operational concepts, new technologies, new processes and new organizational structures as well.
