The Navy’s remotely operated systems transcend domains to redefine the battlespace. These systems take the concept of distributed maritime operations to the next level for distributed lethality. The panel will discuss how these systems influence strategy and tactics for the warfighter and commanders at sea and ashore.
What does “right” look like? The Gen. David Berger’s “Commandant’s Planning Guidance” emphasizes the Marine Corps will be a naval expeditionary force-in-readiness, with a focus on operational integration. Panelists will discuss how the Navy and Marine Corps are adapting technology and shifting processes to meet the demand and provide the capabilities necessary for “Great Power Competition” today.
How does the Marine Corps best contribute to national defense and the joint force? How is the Marine Corps accelerating its pace of change to meet the demands of the future operating environment? What will the Marine Corps focus on in order to meet these challenges?
Special Operations Forces’ Role in Modern Great Power Competition and Shaping for Large-Scale Conflict
How can the special operations forces (SOF) community best contribute to national defense during the “Great Power Competition”? Built over the past two decades of operations, there is an opportunity for SOF to leverage global placement and facilitate joint force and naval service concepts, such as distributed maritime operations and expeditionary advanced base operations. Panelists will discuss how SOF supports naval expeditionary force maneuver at sea and also in coastal/littoral regions in competition and how they can assist in shaping operations for potential large-scale conflict.
New warfighting capabilities and emerging technologies are reshaping warfare in the undersea domain. Panelists will discuss how these advancements in warfighting are enabling distributed warfare in the undersea domain.
As naval aviation continues to transform its fleet with advancing future warfighting capabilities, it has successfully been tackling readiness barriers and warfighting degraders. Panelists will discuss how the Navy and Marine Corps are overcoming the challenges of maintaining and evolving the fleet.
