The U.S. Navy has always relied on superior technology and training to maintain its position as the strongest naval force in the world. Education, especially in the sciences, has served as the Navy's foundation; this has enabled Sailors and officers to maintain a distinct advantage over their adversaries. Recently, to meet the challenges of developing and maintaining a combat-ready Fleet, the Navy has shifted its focus from hands-on to computer-based training (CBT).
