Naval oceanography and information dominance

David W. Titley

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The chief of naval operations (CNO) has reorganized his staff around the creation of an Information Dominance Directorate. Naval oceanography is joining other information-centric capabilities, including intelligence, information technology, and information warfare. Information dominance depends on advanced technology, and the naval oceanography community continues to work with national laboratories, research institutions, and the commercial technology community to ensure that edge. The oceanographer of the Navy is also investing in a modified version of the T-AGS oceangoing military survey vessel, T-AGS 66, which will include a moon pool for the deployment and retrieval of unmanned vehicles. The Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model, jointly developed by the Navy and NOAA, is under final validation and is becoming operational. The CNO has developed Task Force Climate Change to make recommendations to Navy leadership regarding policy, strategy, force structure and investments relating first to the changing Arctic and subsequently to global climate change.
