Maritime Force Projection and Control

The Future Maritime Operating Concept 2025 (FMOC) is the ADF's long term, maritime, joint warfighting capability aspiration. The FMOC seeks to inform and guide Navy, Army and Air Force staffs and Capability Development Group in developing capability requirements for the future ADF in the maritime environment. While Navy leads the development of the FMOC, it is a joint, collaborative effort.

The FMOC is a subset of the Future Joint Operations Concept (FJOC). It supports the complementary environmental concepts: the Army-led Future Land Operating Concept and Air Force-led Future Air and Space Operating Concept. The FMOC is supported by the Joint, Single Service and Enabling Organisations experimentation programs. These programs examine areas of future concepts that are assessed as carrying the greatest risk and/or uncertainty. The results of experimentation inform capability development efforts and improve the fidelity of future iterations of the FMOC.

FMOC 2025 is approved for use by capability developers in considering the future maritime capability needs of the ADF. On behalf of the Chiefs of Service Committee, we commend FMOC 2025 to you.
