There is currently no single document that aids a Joint Task Force Commander or their staff in understanding the complexities of Anitair Warfar (AAW) during amphibious operations by maritime forces. Historically, the Navy has been concerned with the Outer Air Battle. This involves vast distances over the ocean, but does not cover amphibious operations. With the down sizing of the U.S. military as a result of an end to the "Cold War", there will be fewer overseas bases and assets to conduct contingency amphibious operations. The authors review the current and future concepts and doctrine, Command, Control, and Communications, and weapon systems of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps for AAW during amphibious operations. The authors propose that the Amphibious Defense Zone Coordinator (ADZC) paradigm be accepted so that an integrated air defense of the Amphibious Objective Area (AOA) and the Carrier Battle Group (CVBG) are treated as subsets of the same overall AAW plan.
