The U.S. Marine Corps has introduced a new operating concept that focuses on maneuver warfare and operations in an urban littoral environment to update the service branch’s 2014 Expeditionary Force 21, USNI News reported Wednesday.

Megan Eckstein writes the Marine Corps Operational Concept calls for a Marine air-ground task force that will execute maneuver warfare with the use of a combined arms strategy that uses information warfare to produce complementary effects across air, land, sea, space and cyberspace domains.

Gen. Robert Neller, Marine Corps commandant, told an audience at the Modern Day Marine exposition that the military aims to affect the battlespace through information and electronic warfare in addition to the artillery rounds, laser-guided bombs and joint direct attack munitions.

The MOC notes tasks such as the integration of naval forces between Marine Corps and the U.S. Navy to fight at and from sea as well as boost network-hardening, signature emissions management and force maneuvering capacity to help efforts towards Neller’s vision.
