      Undersea warfare (USW) was perceived as a large-area, deep-water operation in the past therefore Fleet USW training ranges were designed to meet these requirements. Currently the bigger threat is the likelihood of regional conflict throughout the world by aggressive nations in littoral waters. The U.S. Navy must stand ready to respond to these regional conflicts when national interests are threatened. Consequently, naval forces must train to operate in the littoral environments where such regional conflicts are likely to occur. The West Cost Shallow Water Undersea Warfare Training Range (WC SWUWTR) is being developed to provide this training.
