The article focuses on military policy related to antisubmarine warfare in the U.S. After a decade in the shadows, the Navy has put antisubmarine warfare (ASW) back at the top of its warfighting priorities, injecting new leadership and increased finding into the fight against a reemerging undersea threat. Chief of Naval Operations has cited three new organizations to drive an effort to improve ASW capabilities by accelerating the development and fielding of new technologies and operational concepts, re-energizing and updating fleet timing, and drafting a new ASW master plan. INSET: Re-emphasizing ASW.
