February 2, 2010

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Department of the Navy (DoN) budget submission of $160.6 billion delivered today is consistent with the 2010 Quadrennial Defense Review, the basic tenets of the National Defense Strategy and the Maritime Strategy. The fiscal year (FY) 2011 baseline budget is a $4.6 billion, or 3 percent increase over the FY2010 level.

Navy and Marine Corps resources have been prioritized to prevail in today's wars, prevent and deter conflict in all domains, prepare for a wide range of contingencies and preserve the force.

Additionally, the FY 2011 request for overseas contingency operations (OCO) of $18.5 billion integrates sustained support for the warfighter. It includes incremental costs to sustain operations, manpower, equipment and infrastructure repair, as well as equipment replacement to support the focus on increasing threats.

The FY 2011 budget supports a deployable battle force of 284 ships including 11 aircraft carriers and 29 large amphibious ships. It also reflects a shift to support irregular warfare and includes funds for the littoral combat ship (LCS), expeditionary E/A-18G aircraft supporting national electronic warfare requirements, P-8 Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance aircraft supporting increased emphasis on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and a variety of unmanned aerial vehicles.

In the area of ship procurement, this budget funds nine new construction ships in FY2011 and 50 ships across the Future Years Defense Plan (FY 2011 through FY 2015)including two Virginia-class submarines per year, 17 LCSs, 8 DDG-51-class ships to continue the DDG-51 program restart, three new Mobile Landing Platforms, the first LHA(R) and the second Ford-class aircraft carrier.

In addition, aircraft procurement funds 206 airframes in FY 2011 and 1,006 airframes across the FYDP.

Navy Operation and Maintenance resources are increased to tightly focus on meeting increased combatant commander operational tempo requirements, properly sustaining and resetting ships and aircraft to reach expected service lives, restoring base budget enduring flight hour requirements previously funded with overseas contingency operations funding, and funding price increases, most notably in fuel.

Military and civilian basic pay is increased by 1.4 percent. Commitment to our investments in science and technology, cyberspace capabilities, facilities sustainment, base closure and family housing is maintained.
