Navy Seaport-e Task Orders and Tech Instructions

Tech Instructions

In 2002, the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) promulgated Sea Power 21. It provides a framework to align, organize, and integrate the U.S. Navy to meet the wide variety of challenges that lie ahead. The CNO called upon the entire Navy, including the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) and the Warfare Centers (WCs), to find ways to become more efficient and effective. To meet Sea Power 21 objectives and to increase efficiency, the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) and the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) have aligned to provide seamless integrated support for 12 core Product Area Directorates. The product areas are led by Product Area Directors that notionally are very small planning and oversight offices. The day-to-day project management, planning, staffing, and project execution will be provided by the geographically diverse NSWC and NUWC Divisions.

The 12 core Product Areas are:

  • Force Level Warfare Systems
  • Ships and Ship Systems
  • Surface Ship Combat Systems
  • Littoral Warfare Systems
  • Strategic Weapons Systems
  • Ordnance
  • Undersea Warfare (USW) Command and Control Systems
  • Undersea Warfare (USW) Weapons and Vehicles
  • Undersea Warfare (USW) Ranges, Analysis, and Assessment
  • Undersea Warfare (USW) Fleet Material Readiness
  • Homeland Security and Force Protection
  • Surface Warfare Logistics and Maintenance
