The U.S. Navy Tenth Fleet is the functional numbered fleet in the United States Navy. It was first created as an anti-submarine warfare coordinating organization during the Battle of the Atlantic in the Second World War. It has been reactivated as a force provider for Fleet Cyber Command. The mission of Tenth Fleet is to serve as the Numbered Fleet for Fleet Cyber Command and exercise operational control of assigned naval forces; to coordinate with other naval, coalition and Joint Task Forces to execute the full spectrum of cyber, electronic warfare, information operations, and signal intelligence capabilities and missions across the cyber, electromagnetic, and space domains. U.S. Tenth Fleet is an operational component of the U.S. Navy Information Dominance Corps.
“No foreign nation, no hacker, should be able to shut down our networks, steal our trade secrets, or invade the privacy of American families, especially our kids. We are making sure our government integrates intelligence to combat cyber threats, just as we have done to combat terrorism,” President Barack Obama, January 2015.
