  Naval ship - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A naval ship is a ship (or sometimes boat, depending on classification) used for combat purposes, commonly by a navy.
Naval ship classification is a field that has changed over time, and is not an area of wide international agreement, so this article currently uses the system as currently used by the United States Navy.
Surface Combatant - large, heavily armed surface ships which are designed primarily to engage enemy forces on the high seas, including various types of battleship, battlecruiser, cruiser, destroyer, and frigate.

 NDP 5: CHAPTER THREE (U) Naval Operation Planning   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
Naval operation planning focuses on delivering the maximum impact from naval force capabilities to achieve operational and strategic objectives in support of the combatant commanders.
Naval forces use mission-type orders that specify the "what" while relying on the initiative and leadership of their commanders to provide the "how." Naval directives specify planned actions intended to establish command authority and responsibility while providing mission and situational awareness for the executing unit.
Naval force operation plans are an integral part of the complete inventory of plans used by the joint force commander and the combatant commander to coordinate all land, sea, air, space, and special operations effectively.

Suspension of construction in case of treaty -STATUTE- In case of a treaty for the limitation of naval armament to which the United States is a signatory, the President may suspend so much of the authorized naval construction as is necessary to bring the naval vessels of the United States within the limitations agreed upon.
This section does not authorize a naval shipyard to construct a nuclear ship for the private shipyard, to perform a majority of the work called for in a contract with a private entity, or to provide articles or services not requested by the private shipyard.
Chief of Naval Operations: certification required for disposal of combatant vessels -STATUTE- Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no combatant vessel of the Navy may be sold, transferred, or otherwise disposed of unless the Chief of Naval Operations certifies that it is not essential to the defense of the United States.

 NDP 6: (U) CHAPTER THREE The Naval Command and Control System   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
Naval forces are organized in a way that clearly defines the structure of authority and responsibility.
A combatant command may have a geographic area of responsibility, referred to as a theater, or functional responsibilities, such as for special operations or space.
Naval commanders rely on them to provide surveillance and intelligence that is an important part of compiling the common battlespace picture.

 Engineering
The engineers fit into the modern naval combatant ship complex by providing essential support to the offensive systems of the ship.
A modern naval combatant "worth its salt" wouldn't be if it did not have radars, radios, guns or missiles--and the radars, radios, guns and missiles couldn't be without an engineering plant.
The naval engineering plant must provide this mobility; the NEWPORT NEWS must be capable of moving when required, and as fast as its missions demands; of operating as far from its base of supplies as required by the tactical situation.

 War Instructions United States Navy 1944 chapter 14
An amphibious force is a permanent naval administrative organization established for the purpose of planning, training for, and conducting landing operations.
For landing operations, an amphibious force is augmented, as the situation demands, by appropriate naval combatant vessels, aircraft, and troop units, for an operational organization known as an attack force.
A joint expeditionary force, or attack force, is under naval command until the troops are established ashore at the objective.

 Development of a Bow for a Naval Surface Combatant which Combines a Hydrodynamic Bulb and a Sonar Dome
The purpose of this design effort was to develop a hydrodynamic bulbous bow, which would provide for a reduction in resistance of a Naval surface combatant, and integrate it into an existing bow which houses a sonar dome.
The Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) informally addressed the potential for uses of the additional volume space of the Design Bulb to house sonar sensors and systems which could be incorporated into existing or planned sonar systems.
A Design Bulb for a Naval surface combatant was developed utilizing data obtained during a bulb feasibility study, model tests on simplified bulbs, and computational fluid dynamics analysis.

A key figure of influence, and a naval special warfare legend, was Capt. Phil H. Bucklew, whose exploits in World War II won him two Navy crosses and the silver star.
The Navy for years had been looking at a new combatant craft to match the Soviet small combatant craft, but never really had the need or money for such a craft in the fleet so all research was on paper alone.

When the ILPOC then asked the lead naval architect whether the Blue Team wanted her and her supervisor to inquire at NAVSEA as to the use of a DD 963, the lead naval architect responded by e-mail early on the morning of April 2: “Please do not do anything.
In any case, the lead naval architect conceded on cross-examination that the Blue Team had not conducted an analysis to determine whether the decommissioned DD 963 they were considering, which was to be significantly modified by replacement of part of the stern, would still be shock qualified after the modification.

Maguire, himself without combat experience, presumes to tell us that he has gone to the mountain, spoken to God and his disciples, interviewed his children and proclaims that all is well on the banks of the Severn.
For Naval Academy midshipmen, it means their life experiences and authority are held to be equal to that of their military instructors.
It has been my experience in naval carrier combat aviation, including combat missions in the skies over North Vietnam where my aircraft was shot at and hit by determined enemy anti-aircraft fire, that TRUST is the crucial element for building a warrior ethos in those who are dedicated to winning our nation's wars.

 DDG-1000 Zumwalt / DD(X) Program
Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Vern Clark said the DD(X) program reflects an awareness that effectively defeating future threats, while accomplishing naval missions, will require a range of naval capabilities and different surface platforms.
DD(X) is the foundation of a family of surface combatants, including a future cruiser, CG(X), and littoral combat ship (LCS), providing the nation with a balanced set of warfighting capabilities to meet the national security requirements in the 21st Century.
Advanced combat system technology and networking capabilities from DD(X) and CG(X) will be leveraged in the spiral development of the littoral combat ship to produce a survivable, capable near-land platform for the 21st century.

 THE ARSENAL SHIP MEASURES UP TO JOINT VISION 2010
Not a naval combatant in the traditional sense, the arsenal ship will perform no command and control functions and will possess only very modest active defensive systems.
Using an AEGIS combatant as a full time C2 escort is not only an inefficient use of a multi-mission platform, but could also negate the most effective survivability feature of the arsenal ship, stealth, if conducted from close range.
The arsenal ship will also reduce the need for naval ammunition replenishment by traditional methods, because it will be able to transport, position, and fire additional weapons on the command of combatant forces who need them most.
