Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Bryan Clark and Representative Elaine Luria (D-VA) for a discussion on the challenges facing the U.S. Navy.
The Navy faces growing readiness challenges even as they work to define a new approach to naval warfare. The naval services will need innovative approaches to address readiness shortfalls and adapt and grow the fleet and expeditionary forces in what is likely to be a flat or declining fiscal environment. Solutions could include a greater reliance on unmanned systems, growing Navy maintenance infrastructure, further rebalancing the fleet toward smaller, less-expensive ships, and divesting of some legacy capabilities to fund new technologies. Join Bryan Clark, director of Hudson’s Center for Defense Concepts and Technology, and U.S. Representative Elaine Luria (D-VA) for a discussion on the future of America’s naval services.
