ASW Aircraft
In  addition  to  these  combat  system  improve- ments,  on-board  training  devices  are  installed  to support   combat   information   center   (CIC)   team training  exercises.  The  ASMD  program  furthers the  improvements  provided  by  the   ship’s   anti- missile   integrated   defense   (SAMID)   immediate program by expanding ship capabilities to counter antiship   missile   threats.   The   ASMD   program integrates  additional  subsystems  into  the  combat system.  It  makes  use  of  expanded  tactical  data processing    techniques    by    providing    a    fully automatic   method   of   responding   to   particular antiship missile threats. The gun weapons system supports that element of the ship’s mission requiring offensive operation against air, surface, and shore targets. It provides this  support  through  its  ability  to  destroy  these types  of  targets  at  ranges  within  the  minimum- range capability of the guided-missile systems. As  in  other  types  of  warfare,  successful  AAW operations   must   be   based   in   part   on   lessons learned  through  costly  experience  and  must  be practiced continually. ANTISUBMARINE WARFARE The   basic   elements   of   the   Navy’s   antisub- marine   warfare   (ASW)   forces   include   surface ships,  aircraft,  and  submarines.  The  integrated undersea  surveillance  system  (IUSS)  is  also  an integral part of our ASW system. This system cues our engagement forces to respond quickly to ASW tactical   areas.   These   elements   are   capable   of operating independently or with each other. The basic mission  of  antisubmarine  warfare  is to   deny   the   enemy   the   effective   use   of   sub- marines.   We   must   go   beyond   what   we   have learned in the past by developing new  techniques to match the expanding role of the submarine. The long-range   nuclear-missile   capability   of   today’s submarines requires that we do more than prevent submarine  torpedo  attacks  on  our   shipping  and naval  vessels.  Instead,  we  must  find  and  keep under  surveillance  all  enemy  submarines  before they  can  reach  a  point  within  missile-launching range of our coasts. SURFACE UNITS The surface ship has a  greater  variety  of  both detection equipment and weapons than any other ASW unit. A prime advantage of the surface ship is its ability to conduct all-weather operations and to remain on station for a comparatively long time. Our most effective ASW surface ships today are frigates,  destroyers,  and  cruisers  equipped  with SH-60B LAMPS helicopters (fig. 12-4). 109.17 Figure 12-4.-An SH-60B Seahawk helicopter in flight near the stern of a guided-missile frigate. 12-13
