The official Department of the Navy website provides separate rank structure charts for enlisted personnel and commissioned and warrant officers, and the charts include the pay grade, rate, abbreviation and insignia for each rank. Enlisted ranks range from seaman recruit to master chief petty officer. Commissioned officer ranks range from ensign to admiral. Chief warrant officer constitutes the only current warrant officer rank, as of 2015.
