This is the March 8, 2017 hearing titled "An Independent Fleet Assessment of the U.S. Navy" held before the House Subcommittee on Seapower and Projection Forces. From the opening statement of Robert J. Wittman: "This afternoon we transition from looking at the Navy's Force Structure Assessment to considering three separate future fleet architecture studies. These three studies were directed by Congress and completed in recent months. These three fleet architecture studies take a different tact and consider what the composition of the fleet could be in the future. Some of their proposals include new ship classes, increased usage of unmanned vehicles, and redesigned ship configurations, just to name a few." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Sunoy Banerjee, Bryan Clark, Charles P. Werchado, and Jesse Wilson Jr.
