Sea Power is defined as the military power of a country's navy. Navies around the world provide maritime forces that: "defend nations, contribute to regional security, support global interests, shape the strategic environment and protect national interests. This is achieved by providing; interdiction and strategic strike; protection of shipping and off-shore territories and resources; maritime intelligence collection and evaluation; hydrographic and oceanographic operations; and escort duties; maritime surveillance and response; hydrographic, oceanographic and meteorological support operations; humanitarian assistance; and maritime search and rescue." ~
