"The United States is a maritime nation with vital interests far from its shores. Operating forward around the globe, the U.S. Navy is
always on watch, contributing key capabilities to win our Nation’s wars, deter conflict, respond to crises, provide humanitarian assistance and disaster response, enhance maritime security, and
strengthen partnerships. The Navy Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 Program supports the highest priorities of the President’s Defense Strategic Guidance (DSG). We organize, man, train, and equip the Navy by
viewing our decisions through three tenets: Warfighting First, Operate Forward, and Be Ready. The Navy will continue to rebalance
to the Asia-Pacific region, sustain support to our partners in the Middle East and other regions, focus our presence at key strategic
maritime crossroads, and satisfy the highest-priority demands of the geographic combatant commanders.

The standard that guides our FY 2015 President’s Budget submission is the DSG and its objectives for the Joint Force; this guidance is benchmarked to the year 2020. The DSG incorporated the first set of Budget Control Act (BCA)-mandated budget reductions and directed the military to address “the projected security environment” and to “recalibrate its capabilities and make selective additional
investments to succeed in the missions” of the Armed Forces.

The Navy prioritized investments to maintain a credible and modern sea-based strategic deterrent, maximize forward presence using ready deployed forces, preserve the means to defeat or deny adversaries, sustain adequate readiness, continue investing
in asymmetric capabilities, and sustain a relevant industrial base.

The Navy’s FY 2015 Program provides the resources to achieve the President’s strategic guidance, albeit at higher levels of risk for some missions - most notably if the military is confronted with a technologically advanced adversary or is forced to respond to more than one major contingency. In the near term, we face readiness challenges because of sequester-induced shortfalls, limited FY 2015 funding, and the expected demand for U.S. military forces globally. Throughout the long term, we face the risk of uncertainty inherent to the dynamic nature of the security environment. Should funding be adjusted to the BCA reduced discretionary caps, the Navy will not be able to execute the President’s defense
strategy in the near or long term.

The Navy made tough choices to achieve a comprehensive and balanced FY 2015 Program, based on the following strategic
priorities:
• Provide credible, modern and safe strategic deterrent
• Provide global forward presence
• Preserve means to defeat or deny adversaries"

U.S. NAV
PROGRAM GUIDE 2014
 
FOREWORD
The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps team is the world’s preeminent maritime force and seapower continues to serve the nation as a powerful instrument of de-fense and diplomacy. As America’s “away team” postured forward in places that count, the sun never sets on our forces. We are ready where it matters,  when it matters to safeguard and advance our national security interests.
Each day we fulfill our longstanding purpose of extending America’s defense in depth, bolstering global stability that underpins our country’s economic vitality, and building trust and confidence through ever-present engagement with allies and partners. The U.S. Navy’s mix of capa-bilities, operating forward in the global commons today and tomorrow, will give the President ready options to promptly deal with disruptions that could undermine our security or economic prosperity. Naval forces will con-tinue to field and operate a balanced mix of capabilities to assure access, deter aggression, respond to crises, and where necessary, decisively win wars. No matter how uncertain the future may be, or where conflict may emerge, the U.S. Navy’s roles will not funda-mentally change—they are timeless. Our inherent multi-mission flexibility allows us to deal with an unpredictable and highly transformative world. This adaptability is also key as we prudently steward taxpayers’ dollars, squeeze out costs, find efficiencies, and innovate. The U.S. Navy will do its part to reduce the deficit, but we will do so in a respon-sible way, balancing our duty to sustain current readiness while building an affordable future force able to address a range of threats, contingencies, and high-consequence events that could impact our nation’s core interests. This program guide describes our investments that will deliver the seapower to do just that. You can be proud of the Navy we have built and will continue to evolve. We are putting it to good use and the nation is getting a high return on its capital invest-ment. Over the last year, we were on station in the Pa-cific to deal with provocative North Korean actions. We patrolled off the shores of Syria, Libya, Egypt, Somalia, and Sudan to protect American lives, hunt violent extremists, and induce regional leaders to make constructive choices amid widespread disorder. We delivered aid and relieved suffering in the Philippines in the wake of a devastating typhoon. We mobilized to restrain coercion against our allies and friends in the East and South China Seas. We kept piracy at bay in the Horn of Africa. We projected long-range combat power from aircraft carriers in the North Arabian Sea into Afghanistan, and arrayed our forces to enhance stability in the Arabian Gulf. Across the Middle East and Africa, we took the fight to insurgents, terrorists, and their supporting networks by providing high leverage expeditionary support to Special Operations Forces. Every day, our people are bringing their knowl-edge and equipment to bear against America’s toughest challenges, and they are making a difference. We will continue to flow our advanced capabilities for-ward where they can be used interdependently with other  joint forces for best effect. Increasingly lethal Coastal Patrol Combatants are arriving in Bahrain, Ballistic Missile Defense-capable destroyers are starting to base out of Rota; versatile Littoral Combat Ships, P-8A aircraft, and nuclear-powered attack submarines continue deploy-ing to the Pacific as part of our strategic rebalance; and a mix of highly configurable expeditionary support ships like the Mobile Landing Platform, Joint High Speed Vessel, and Afloat Forward Staging Base are already in, or coming to, a theater near you. The sensors, weapons, and tailored force packages—the “payloads”—carried by these and other Navy platforms are equally, if not more important, than the “truck” itself. This program guide will give you a strong sense of the value we place on those capabilities, some of which are truly game changing. If history is any guide, our Sailors and line leaders will not just use these capabilities as designed, they will employ them in imaginative and novel ways to overcome any challenge they may face on, under, or over the sea. Our Navy has never been more indispensable to America’s global influence, security, and prosperity. I trust every member of the Navy-Marine Corps team will capital-ize on their intellectual talent and warrior spirit to make the most of the cutting-edge technology coming into the force.
