Vice Adm. Matthew Kohler discussed the U.S. Navy's efforts to address the information warfare needs of dynamic maritime operations, DVIDS Hub reported Saturday.
“The warfighting construct challenge has gotten so complex in the maritime domain that we’re no longer focused just on tactical warfighting that we see ahead of us,” he said during the Defense Intelligence Agency's recent DoDIIS Worldwide Conference in Tampa, Florida.
Kohler, who serves as director of naval intelligence and deputy chief of naval operations for information warfare, said warfighters need information warfare to operate across wide geographies in a distributed, timely manner. He also noted that information warfare would help the service branch develop the Navy Tactical Grid, an updated maritime strategic design.
The new design emphasizes on the Navy's joint, collaborative work with foreign allies for future missions, he added.
