Countersea Operations are the use of Air Force capabilities in the maritime environment to accomplish the joint force commander's objectives. This doctrine supports DOD Directive 5100.01, Functions of the Department of Defense and Its Major Components, requirements for surface sea surveillance, anti-air warfare, anti-surface ship warfare, and anti-submarine warfare. Air Force countersea operations are conducted in the maritime environment through counterair; strategic attack; air interdiction; close air support; and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance operations. Air Force forces also provide vital air mobility support to maritime forces through air refueling.
