Doctrine

Navy doctrine enables achievement of operational objectives by providing a common reference that guides the employment of forces, serves as a force development tool, and provides the foundation for training and professional military education.  The Chief of Naval Operations has assigned NWDC responsibility for overseeing the development of Service doctrine  to ensure doctrine development is iterative, considers current capabilities, force structure, proven processes, and fielded materiel systems. NWDC aligns doctrine development initiatives with higher echelon force development and force generation lines of effort, and represents Navy equities in the development of naval, joint, multi-service, allied, and multi-national doctrine.
