To operate a world class, global, Navy, we need inspiring people working as one team to be highly efficient, innovative and productive to deliver on behalf of the people of the United Kingdom, protecting them, preventing conflict and ready to fight our enemies whenever needed. To do so, the Navy is committed to mobilising, modernising and transforming our capabilities and business practices to meet the challenges of the future operating environment. We aim to achieve this as a partner in Defence, leveraging the very best of Defence Industry expertise alongside Science and Technology to transform the Navy to fight and win.
