It is an introductory course presenting the fundamental philosophy of submarine design, submerged operation and combat system employment as they are managed by a battle-tested submarine organization that all-in-all make a US submarine a very cost-effective warship at sea—and under it. Today’s US submarine tasking is discussed in consonance with the strategy and policy of the US, and the goals, objectives, mission, functions, tasks, responsibilities, and roles of the US Navy as they are so funded. Submarine warfare is analyzed referencing some calculations for a Benefits-to-Cost analysis, in that, Submarines Sink Ships! From this course you will gain a better understanding of submarine warships being stealth-oriented, cost-effective combat systems at sea. Those who have worked with specific submarine sub-systems will find that this course will clarify the rationale and essence of their interface with one another. Attendees will receive copies of the presentation along with some relevant white papers. What You Will Learn Differences in submarine types (SSN/SSBN/ SSGN) Submarine onboard organization and day to day operations Basic Fundamentals of submarine systems and sensors Submarine Mission profiles Basics of Submarine Warfare tactical and operational control How submarines support national military objectives Makeup and function of the Submarine Support Enterprise How the sea impacts submarine operations Submarine Maintenance Cycles – Supporting the Tip of the Spear
