Keeping the Warfighting Edge
WTIs bring their creativity, ingenuity, and initiative to developing the next generation of cutting-edge tactics, techniques, and procedures. The WTI Program is a career opportunity that values our officers and empowers them to solve complex and challenging problems. SMWDC WTIs naturally have an eye toward innovation, are re-building the surface warfare library of tactical guidance, are shepherding new capability from delivery to operational success, and challenging the status quo in surface warfare training. I feel much more prepared for the challenges of an at-sea department head assignment after completing a WTI readiness production tour.
The WTI cadre of warriors, thinkers, and teachers are uniquely equipped with the experience and knowledge to make significant contributions during their readiness production tours and throughout their careers. It is no coincidence that the same skills involved in developing tactical mastery are extraordinarily useful in subsequent assignments at sea — department head, XO, CO, and major command. While statistically significant trend data does not yet exist for WTI selection for career milestone billets, members of the WTI cadre performed very well during recent administrative boards.
For those looking to increase their confidence and competitiveness for future at-sea assignments, the WTI program offers a unique opportunity to strengthen their professional attributes and shape the Navy for years to come.

Empowerment SMWDC is unlocking the potential of our junior officers and post-department heads, empowering them to swarm and solve difficult problems. Serg Samardzic and Lt. Katie Whitman was the lead action officer developing the SWATT in port and underway curriculum from the ground-up, using best-of-breed practices culled from aviation and other communities.
With replay tools that offer ground truth much earlier, we can increase the velocity of learning within surface ASW teams dramatically. Naddel and his team revised a year-old document laden with technical jargon and dated systems into an information-packed and easily understood tactical publication relevant to all surface ships. Eberhardt leveraged at-sea training and experimentation events to rapidly refine tactical guidance in Based on his work, the CAS capability was used to great success in the operational fleet later that year.
Matt Clark designed and built a Target Motion Analysis TMA training tool accessible on any classified terminal with built-in performance analytics. This type of information could then be used to inform currency thresholds for future training requirements. He conducted extensive research on SM-6 that included production site visits, participation in wargaming and experimentation, as well as involvement in fleet missile firings.
