dc.description.abstractCurrent Maritime Strategy envisions forward flanking operations for the U.S. Navy in a future war. Soviet development and future deployment of submarine-launched cruise missiles(SLCMs) in a strategic mode, specifically their SS-NX-21's and SS-NX-24's, pose different problems to our present maritime plans which envision our fleets and forces engaged away from home waters. Land-attack(SLA) SLCMs, if deployed in platforms off our or allied coasts, will impact upon deployment, development and engagement planning as guided by the maritime strategy. Their effect on Western SLOCs, port facilities, bases and threat to interior continental strategic forces can be met by an extended maritime strategy which promotes a measure of coastal defense. Aspects for U.S. Naval interaction are the current Maritime Defense Zones (MDZ) program, and the newer Air Defense Initiative (ADI). This investigation examines the Soviet SLA-SLCM threat, a broader maritime strategy, and the U.S. Navy's role in the MDZ and ADI programs. Keywords: coastal defenseen_US
