Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson has said he wants the U.S. Navy‘s future warships to have a modular system design and technology that can support cyber and electronic warfare operations, Breaking Defense reported Friday.

“That platform may last the life of a traditional ship, 25 to 30 years… but we have to make it very much more modular or adaptable to improving technologies,” Richardson was quoted as saying.

He told reporters Monday that he also looks forward to exercising greater oversight of acquisition programs at the Navy in accordance with authority granted under the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act.

Richardson is working with the Defense Department and Congress to identify an approach for the Navy to eliminate bureaucratic acquisition practices and accelerate the process, according to the report.

He added the Navy aims to formalize a system for training its program managers.
