Vice Adm. William Merz: Navy Eyes Force Structure Assessment in 2019

Navy Vice Adm. William Merz, deputy chief of naval operations for warfare systems (N9), has said the service will carry out a force structure assessment in 2019, Defense News reported Wednesday.

Merz said Wednesday at the Defense News Conference the FSA will call for regional threat commanders to gauge the perception of threat and subject that evaluation to war games for potential analysis by independent study teams.

He noted the Navy will also conduct an interim evaluation “a little but quicker — a review of any indications of changes.”

The report said the planned FSA is expected to offer details on the types of ships the service requires.
