The Navy's top leader has released a detailed plan that highlights the U.S. Navy's intended track and investments for the next 5 fiscal years, informs Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs.

Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert's 2015-2019 Navigation Plan defines how the Navy will use its resources to safely and effectively pursue the vision detailed in Sailing Directions. 


"This navigation plan defines the course and speed we will follow to organize, train and equip our Navy over the next several years," said Greenert in the document. "Despite likely sequestration in 2016, our priority is to operate forward where it matters, when it matters, and be ready to address a wide range of threats and contingencies."


"Crafting this year's budget included tough choices across a wide range of competing priorities - we focused first on building appropriate capability, then delivering it at a capacity we could afford," said Greenert.



Each year since Greenert released the Sailing Directions the Navigation Plan has described the annual Navy's budget submission for the future years. The Navigation Plan has highlighted investments in support of DOD's guidance and strategic documents as well as this year's 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review. 



In the plan Greenert explains how the Navy will acclimate to budget challenges, increasing operational tempo while balancing current readiness with the need to build a highly capable future fleet. Pursuing the vision set in the Sailing Directions this plan lays out the investments that will allow the Navy to maintain it's warfighting edge, forward presence and keep Navy members prepared, confident and proficient. This plan highlights how investments will support Navy missions through the lens of the three tenets, Warfighting First, Operate Forward and Be ready.



This navigation plan was released by Greenert to Navy's senior leaders and distributed on Navy's social media properties as a priority to be communicated at all levels. 
Greenert will release a Position Report later in the year that reviews the Navy's progress over the last year in pursuing objectives laid out in the Sailing Directions and earlier Navigation Plans, which can be found on his leadership page.
