The U.S. Marine Corps is focusing on network advances that empower warfighters to an unprecedented degree. The result will be that smaller groups of Marines will have more capabilities than larger units had just a few years ago.
Speaking in a panel discussion at West 2015, being held in San Diego, February 10-12, Maj. Gen. Lawrence D. Nicholson, USMC, commanding general, 1st Marine Division, emphasized this focus on the warfighter. “Power down, power down, power down” he said of networking priorities. “Let’s get the information we need on a reliable network into the hands of the warfighter on the ground.”
