Section 1: Vision Element Definitions and Goals

Naval Aviation provides a robust and credible forward presence, one that is able to respond flexibly to crises and to project dominant power when called upon to do so. This section examines the five central elements of the Naval Aviation Vision -developed by the Fleet- that must underpin these capabilities.

Naval Aviation's Vision is built upon the concepts set forth in Joint Vision 2010 and the Naval Operational Concept. With these as our foundation, Naval Aviation relies upon its Quality and Motivated People, Technology and Innovation, and Sustainment capabilities to support the Unique Forward Presence and Flexible Responsiveness that our national and military leaders require. In turn, each element has specific goals that must be achieved if Naval Aviation is to adapt successfully to the emerging demands of a new century.
