The Secretary of Defense plans to shift Navy aircraft carrier acquisition to every five years. This shift should have little impact on force structure and the industrial base in the next decade. After that, the force structure shrinks, as does the chance of meeting goals for the number of deployed aircraft carriers. The plan could have a larger effect on any later desire to increase the number of aircraft carriers in the fleet.
