WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) released his Guidance for 2011 to the fleet Oct. 18.

Adm. Gary Roughead's CNO Guidance (CNOG) emphasizes the important issues regarding the future of naval operations.

CNOG reaffirms Roughead's three focus areas: to build the future force, maintain the Navy's warfighting readiness, and develop and support Sailors, Navy civilians, and their families.

In the Guidance, Roughead addresses a multitude of issues including maritime strategy, operational tempo, building and sustaining strong international relationships, maintaining a competency-based and mission-focused force and the importance of science and technology initiatives.

The current CNOG continues to emphasize CNO's 18 intentions with a focus on five specific areas: continue to be the dominant, ready naval force across all maritime missions; build a Navy with appropriate force structure and strategic laydown; maintain decision superiority; align the requirements, resources and acquisition processes; and evolve and establish international relationships.

Roughead also addresses the current challenges the Navy faces due to the resource constrained environment.

"We must look at this time as one of opportunity where boldness and innovation are the path to the future," writes Roughead. "It is up to each of us to do so."
