Path to 355

In 2017, Congress set the goal of a 355-ship Navy fleet into federal law. Several years later, the Navy is no closer to reaching that goal and is stuck with fewer than 300 vessels.

Building more ships, however, is not as easy as turning on a light switch. In a policy paper written with the help of AUSN members and Navy experts, AUSN has identified the key hurdles America must overcome before building a Navy that's capable of projecting power and securing our interests at sea:
