Abstract
THe Director General Maritime Development (DGMD) is sponsoring a major force development study to assess the most significant trends in maritime warfare over the next two decades and their impact on Canada - Canadian Maritime Forces (CMF) 2015. As a portion of this study, a survey questionnaire was developed which incorporates a broad range of maritime capabilities and a set of possible scenarios into an evaluation framework amenable to qualitative assessment by experienced maritime air and naval officers. The paper presents a detailed analysis of the 108 questionnaire responses received by the study team with respect to Scenario 2: "Ocean Resources Dispute" and compares these results with those reported previously for Scenario 5: "Multi-National Power Projection". Overall, the survey responses suggest that improvements are needed in all aspects of Canadian maritime capability to accomplish the postulated Scenario 2 missions, except the provision of fuel/spares to Canadian warships, for which current capability is assessed as sufficient. Naval officer responses show that they are most concerned with anti-submarine warfare and command and control capabilities. Their greatest concerns for this scenario (in rank order) are to counter underwater attack, to maintain the recognized maritime picture, to detect/classify submarines, to destory submarines, and in a tie, to exploit intelligence sources and to detect mines.
