The oceans and seas still play a vital role in the prosperity and protection of the world’s population. A coastal Navy is focused on protecting a country’s territorial waters and adjacent international waters. The maritime domain is generally subdivided into two primary categories: littoral (coastal) and open ocean (blue-water). The littorals are defined by relatively shallow waters and close proximity to the coasts. Open-ocean operations are marked by waters beyond the maritime boundaries of nations. Maritime patrolling is essential in peacetime due to piracy, terrorism, smuggling, protection of fishing areas, securing the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and sea lines of communication. Sea control allows a Navy to use the sea area for their national security objectives and denies access to a potential adversary.
