McConnell, J.M. [VADM/USN (Ret.)], and Edward J. Giorgio. "Building Information Security Layer by Layer." U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 124, no. 12 (Dec. 1998): 44-47.
"[I]nformation security is a difficult problem, and the Navy will not rely on any single mechanism to provide it. To compromise our security, an adversary must defeat the security mechanisms layer-by-layer. With proper defense in depth, the risk is minimized that a single flaw will leave an information system vulnerable."
McDaniel, Michael L. "High-Altitude UAVs Should Be Naval Players." U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 125, no. 2 (Feb. 1999): 70-72.
The focus here is on RQ-3 Darkstar and RQ-4 Global Hawk UAVs. "The DARPA program ... is scheduled to transition to an Air Force-led joint program office in 1999, with operational vehicles under Air Force control -- and battle group commanders have learned from bitter experience to depend as little as possible on resources not directly under their command. The answer is obvious -- either expand the Navy/Marine Corps role in both the Joint Program Office and operational units; or buy some Global Hawks and paint 'Navy' or 'Marines' on the fuselage."

"Traditionally, there has been little to no relationship between the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) and Naval Special Warfare.... For NAVSPECWAR combat forces, intelligence support ... was often the application of information they themselves had gained.... Today, much has changed, although much still remains to be accomplished.... Over the long term, the health of Naval Intelligence support to NAVSPECWAR rests with cultivating expertise in supporting this warfare act."
Melnicki, John. "Sub Finds New Home." NMIA Newsletter 10, no. 3 (1995): 4.
The closing of Mare Island Naval Shipyard, CA, has necessitated the moving of the specially configured nuclear submarine Parche to Submarine Base Bangor, WA. The Parche, the successor to the Halibut for use in specialized intelligence missions, is the "only Navy submarine of its type rigged for the stealthy retrieval of underwater objects, although a nuclear-powered mini-sub called the NR-1 is available for such missions."

Reports recreation of ONI "as a single organization under the direct command of the Director of Naval Intelligence. [T]he DNI also assumed command as Director of the new Office of Naval Intelligence, a second echelon command under the Chief of Naval Operations." Also, includes brief history of ONI with some attention to name changes along the way.
Newman, Richard J. "Breaking the Surface." U.S. News & World Report, 6 Apr. 1998. [http://www.usnews.com]
Although the basic thrust is about the U.S. submarine fleet generally, this article includes substantial discussion of the surveillance and other covert activities engaged in by submarines. "Today the chief missions are surveillance of surface ships and coastal regions, attacking land targets with cruise missiles, and protecting aircraft carriers from undersea threats such as mines and short-range diesel-electric submarines. Subs eavesdrop on radio traffic, drop off and retrieve teams of Navy SEAL special-operation forces, shadow drug traffickers -- any mission that requires stealth and silence. "

Tritten, James J. "A Sea Change for Naval Intelligence: Adjusting to the New Realities." Naval Intelligence Professionals Quarterly 10, no. 2 (Apr. 1994): 5-7.
The author refers to the "growth of the relative importance of non-traditional roles and methods of Naval Intelligence and military intelligence in general.... One way to handle the impossibility of being able to provide specialists for all geographic and functional-specific areas is ... the top-down deductive approach ... [which] relies on generalists who first build a theory, and then look for specifics."
Vistica, Gregory L. Fall from Glory. New York: Simon & Schuster, 1995.
Brooks and Manthorpe, NIPQ 12.2 (Apr. 1996): "In his rush to tar the entire Navy with the brush of ineptitude, intellectual dishonesty and 'institutional corruption,' [Vistica] is too busy fabricating 'intelligence failures' (they usually help sell books) to pick up on what was probably the biggest story -- how good intelligence, well-analyzed and well-applied ... enabled the US Navy to devise a strategy ... which would have helped ensure victory, should we have had to fight a war with the USSR.... Vistica mixes fact with fabrication, history with self-serving and mean-spirited gossip, half-truth with personal prejudice." The authors of the review were DNI and Deputy DNI, respectively.
Worthington, George [RADM/USN (Ret.)]. "Whither Naval Special Warfare?" U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 122, no. 1 (Jan. 1996): 61-63.
"After more than a decade of revitalization, how will [special operations forces] be employed?" Worthington expresses particular concern that past SOF experience will be standardized into rigid doctrine, while it is unconventionality that is really the point of SOFs.
Wright, Marshall N. "Battlespace 2000: Intelligence Communications for Deployed Naval Forces." American Intelligence Journal 17, no. 3/4 (1997): 59-64.
The focus here is on (1) the requirement for the Battle Group Commander for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance products and (2) the introduction into the fleet of the Common High Bandwidth Data Link - Surface Terminal on carriers.
