Fed­er­al Min­istry of Defense — Naval Staff

The fol­low­ing two major com­mands are assigned to the Fed­er­al Min­istry of Defense and to the Naval Staff:

Fleet Com­mandNaval Office
The Fleet Com­mand has com­mand over the naval forces and naval air assets, the sup­port units afloat and some shore-based units. The CINCGERFLEET com­mands the naval and naval air forces from his Glücks­burg-based mar­itime head­quar­ters.
The Direc­tor Oper­a­tions advis­es him on issues relat­ing to oper­a­tional plan­ning and imple­ments his deci­sions.
The Sur­geon Gen­er­al of the Navy pro­vides advice on all med­ical issues. He exer­cis­es tech­ni­cal con­trol over the Navy Med­ical Ser­vice and com­mands the Naval Med­ical Insti­tute.
The Naval 0ffice is a major com­mand of the Ger­man Navy. It is respon­si­ble for the train­ing of per­son­nel, the sup­ply of naval sea and air units as well as for main­tain­ing and upgrad­ing their capa­bil­i­ties. It also iden­ti­fies and mon­i­tors the mil­i­tary and tech­ni­cal require­ments to be met when build­ing new ves­sels. Owing to this large num­ber of tasks, the Naval Office is orga­nized into a num­ber of divi­sions. The office exer­cis­es com­mand and con­trol over the naval schools, the naval bases, the Naval Com­mand and Con­trol Sys­tems Com­mand and the Naval Ser­vice Test Com­mand.
The sail train­ing ves­sel GORCH FOCK reports to the Naval Acad­e­my in Flens­burg-Mür­wik.

In the field of div­ing med­i­cine it also pro­vides ser­vices for the entire Bun­deswehr.
In close coop­er­a­tion with civil­ian and mil­i­tary agen­cies at home and abroad, the insti­tute points the way in the field of naval medl­cine as well as div­ing and hyper­bar­ic med­i­cine. These fields also con­sti­tute the main fields of research and train­ing.
A total of 71 per­son­nel, includ­ing 57 sol­diers, work in inter­dis­ci­pli­nary teams and, among oth­er things, use a high­ly mod­ern hyper­bar­ic cham­ber sys­tem, spe­cial diag­nos­tic equip­ment, facil­i­ties for telemed­i­cine and a sick bay team train­er.
