  Surface Warfare Badge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Surface Warfare Badge is a military badge of the United States Navy which is issued to those Naval personnel who are trained and qualified to perform duties aboard United States surface warships.
The Surface Warfare Badge was first proposed in 1972 and, by 1980, several classes of the Surface Warfare Badge had been approved for issuance.
The Staff Surface Warfare Badges are most often granted to staff personnel permanently assigned to afloat naval commands, such as the medical department onboard an aircraft carrier.

 Surface warfare - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Naval warfare is divided into three operational areas: surface warfare, air warfare and submarine warfare.
Modern surface warfare dates from the mid 20th century, when surface, air, and submarine warfare components were blended together as a tactical unit to achieve strategic objectives.
In the second half of the 20th century, the importance of naval surface power was reduced as air and submarine warfare platforms demonstrated their capabilities.

Surface warfare is the soul of the Navy.
For the surface warfare community, the end of the Cold War brought a period of reassessment that is still ongoing.
We say that surface warfare is the soul of the Navy because all operational concepts for naval forces—and to a great extent, land-based tactical air forces—have their historical origins in the individual ship-to-ship, fleet-versus-fleet, and fleet-versus-shore combat that constitutes traditional war at sea.

 Surface Warfare
Surface combatants can also be deployed without a carrier either independently or as part of a surface action group.
A surface action group generally consists of two or more surface combatants and deploys for unique operations, such as augmenting military coverage in world regions, providing humanitarian assistance, and conducting exercises with allied forces.
During the 1991 Persian Gulf War surface combatants were used to conduct several sea control and power projection missions, which included protecting maritime traffic, performing maritime intercept operations of contraband shipping to sever Iraqi trade, conducting deep-strike Tomahawk missile attacks against Iraq, and providing combat search and rescue operations in the region.

 Surface Warfare - Navy Ships
Surface combatants were used to conduct several sea control and power projection missions, which included protecting maritime traffic, performing maritime intercept operations of contraband shipping to sever Iraqi trade, conducting deep-strike Tomahawk missile attacks against Iraq, and providing combat search and rescue operations in the region.
The Navy’s Surface Warfare Division’s August 1995 Surface Combatant Force Level Study concluded that 165 cruisers, destroyers, and frigates would be needed through 2010 to meet war-fighting requirements of two nearly simultaneous MRCs.
The subsequent 21st Century Surface Combatant Force Architecture Assessment, completed in February 1996 by the Naval Surface Warfare Center, suggested that the surface combatant force level from 2010 to 2030 could be even smaller than the 145-ship force recommended by the earlier study.

 Career Options
The Surface Warfare Community is composed of officers who are qualified in the surface warfare specialty, who man the surface ships of the Navy and whose goal is to command those ships.
The Surface Warfare Officer (SWO) must develop experience and in-depth knowledge in a specific line discipline (operations, combat systems or engineering) and learn the fundamentals of engineering, weapon systems, and operational tactics.
A SWO's knowledge of surface warfare must also include an understanding of the operations of the various ship types within the surface force including carriers, cruisers, destroyers, frigates, amphibious, mine warfare and combat logistics force ships.

For many, that labor was rewarded with the attainment of either the enlisted surface warfare specialist qualification, or the surface warfare officer qualification.
Each of these warfare qualifications can only be achieved when a person demonstrates a thorough knowledge of the surface warfare mission in general and the ship's mission and capabilities in particular.
The surface warfare qualification programs are important from a combat readiness standpoint, because it allows Sailors and officers to see beyond the narrow frame their jobs sometimes require.

 Navy League of the United States - Citizens in Support of the Sea Services
Half a year earlier, the Navy's surface warfare community had articulated its own vision and ideas about future programs, largely in response to dynamics well beyond its control that had by then required a radical restructuring of virtually all Navy plans and programs.
Force structure and force mix requirements are two Surface Warfare concerns that have been reassessed several times since the mid-1990s, with the conclusions ranging from 138 surface warships to as many as 194, depending on the initial assumptions postulated.
Surface Warfare's future family of ships, in combination with upgrades to the existing Aegis cruisers and destroyers, is thus seen as a key "enabler" for meeting future mission needs for Sea Strike, Sea Shield, and Sea Basing.

But both the surface vessel as well as aircraft are relatively easier to detect and neutralise.
It will be highly risky to repeat such a performance by using surface vessels because today's surface fleet can be easily detected by maritime patrol aircraft and neutralised by anti-ship missiles launched by aircraft, surface vessels and submarines.
But these large surface vessels also offer themselves as prime targets to hostile submarines armed with SLCMs since the range of ASW weapons on these ships is less than the range of SLCM.
