UWDC, under the direction of Commander, Submarine Forces (COMSUBFOR), leads undersea superiority and enables the combat lethality
and desired effects generated from, and within, the Undersea Domain. This document defines "Undersea Warfare" (USW) as any
capability (or function that enables a particular capability) to produce these effects. The USW mission encompasses all relevant
maritime regimes (e.g. space and Arctic operations) and brings with it the necessity to provide breadth and depth across multiple
commands and the entire Doctrine, Operations, Training, Material, Leadership, Personnel, and Facilities (DOTMLPF) spectrum.
