The Readiness Kill Chain helps the Navy bridge Fleet challenges and ensure its forward-deployed forces are mission ready.
Our job as fleet commanders is to provide the United States with ready, forward-deployed naval forces. This takes concerted teamwork and many distinct partners working together toward a common goal. However, the organizations and rules responsible for developing readiness for deployable units have grown over time. The Navy originally built these entities to guide specific parts of the process but did not necessarily integrate them into the readiness production system as a whole.
