MITRE: Navy Future Fleet Platform Architecture Study


Read the Report – In its “Navy Future Fleet Platform Architecture Study,” the MITRE Corporation – one of America’s federally funded research and development centers – concluded that the US Navy needs 414 ships to support US strategy and confront threats in 2030. The study is one of three mandated by Congress in the National Defense Authorization Act 2016 to help shape Navy shipbuilding and force structure. The other two are “Restoring American Seapower” by the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments that concludes the Navy needs between about 340 and 380 ships — depending on ship counting rules — and the Navy’s own internal study, “Alternative Future Fleet Platform Architecture Study,” which found a need for 355 ships. Links to all three reports can be found on this site.
