Navy Warfare Development Command


Fleet Concepts of Operation (CONOPS) inform planners and operators of capabilities available today, and those that will reach initial operating capability (IOC) within the future years defense program (FYDP). They complement current and existing doctrine by integrating emerging technologies and capabilities into Fleet operations and tactics. In addition to authoring tasked CONOPS, NWDC assists other commands with their assigned CONOPS writing, connections to doctrine and other CONOPS, classification, and all draft CONOPS reviews. NWDC produces the Fleet CONOPS Writing Guide and maintains the master file of all Fleet CONOPS in the Navy Doctrine Library System.
