Measuring the Value of Naval Presence

Grant Year: 2022

Jerry Hendrix will explore how U.S. naval presence operations have enabled the United States to preserve stability and deter conflict. He will review existing research on the impacts of naval presence, develop a new theoretical explanation for the role of presence operations, construct a database of U.S. presence operations over the past century, and isolate the contributing elements of individual naval platforms to the value of presence. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
