Gen. Robert Brown, U.S. Army Pacific’s commanding general, said during the Association of the U.S. Army Global Force Symposium in Huntsville, Ala., that the service must prepare for multidimensional combat, National Defense magazine reported Wednseday.
Brown noted that all Army units will eventually cover capabilities to handle threats such as electronic warfare, drone swarms and unmanned aerial vehicles. “All formations will have to become multidimensional or they will be irrelevant in the future,” he added.
The Army previously established the intelligence, information, cyber, electronic warfare and space battalion to support its pilot program for multi-domain operations. The service has a four-year approach to achieve readiness in multi-domain warfare.
