1 1 Version st Century Marine Corps Speed, Flexibility, & Agility …Globally

2 2 Exploiting Our Edge We are building tomorrow’s Marine Corps upon our enduring ethos:  Warfighting excellence  Combined Arms MAGTFs  Expeditionary culture in tandem with our Navy partners  First to Fight Challenges  Concepts  Capabilities “ Our forces in the next century must be agile, lethal, readily deployable, and require a minimum of logistical support. We must be able to project our power over long distances, in days or weeks, rather than months” President G.W. Bush “ Our forces in the next century must be agile, lethal, readily deployable, and require a minimum of logistical support. We must be able to project our power over long distances, in days or weeks, rather than months” President G.W. Bush

3 3 Sharpening the Sword Strategic Challenges inform our Concepts Warfighting Concepts frame our Capabilities Relevant Capabilities define our Contribution to the Nation Challenges  Concepts  Capabilities

4 4 Strategic Landscape The Irregular Threats  A global radical Islamist insurgency  Asymmetric warfare fought by decentralized groups of terrorists  Exploitation of failed and failing states—intrastate conflicts The Traditional Threats  Regional powers with conventional and (some) nuclear capability  Continued instability created by interstate conflicts Our challenge in this new century is a difficult one. It’s really to prepare to defend our nation against the unknown, the uncertain and what we have to understand will be the unexpected. SecDef D. H. Rumsfeld Our challenge in this new century is a difficult one. It’s really to prepare to defend our nation against the unknown, the uncertain and what we have to understand will be the unexpected. SecDef D. H. Rumsfeld Complex mix of non-traditional & traditional threats

6 6 Sharpening the Sword Strategic Challenges inform our Concepts Warfighting Concepts frame our Capabilities Relevant Capabilities define our Contribution to the Nation Challenges  Concepts  Capabilities

7 7 Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare (EMW) Operational Maneuver From the Sea (OMFTS)  Ship-to-Objective Maneuver (STOM)  Sustained Operations Ashore (SOA) Seabasing Maritime Prepositioning Force (Future) (MPF(F)) Distributed Operations (DO)(DRAFT ) Warfighting Concepts Challenges  Concepts  Capabilities EMW Hierarchy of Concepts Here EMW OMFTS STOM FUNCTIONAL CONCEPTS Enhanced Network Seabasing, MPF (F), Info Ops Expeditionary Fires, Logistics, Intell, Mine Countermeasures Beyond C2 SOA DO Capstone Operational Operating

8 8 Seabasing Challenges  Concepts  Capabilities Exploits Distributed Operations globally across the full range of military operations National capability for global force projection  Exploits sea as maneuver space 365 days a year Requires tools developed from Naval Capability Pillars  Sea Shield, Sea Strike, Sea Base, FORCEnet  Navy and Marines pursuing integrated logistics system Enables capabilities of the Joint Force Maximizes effects of forward presence Reduces dependence on vulnerable bases, “steps lightly” on allies and partners  Increased options for the President  Operational independence for the Regional Combatant Commander (RCC) The Marine Corps will exploit the US Navy’s command of the sea to project, protect, and sustain integrated joint warfighting capabilities

9 9 Maritime Prepositioning Force (Future) CONUS OBJ CSG MPG ESG Rapid Joint Forcible Entry (10-14 Days) Joint Operations Area High Speed Sealift High Speed Connector A seabased “system of systems” that enables rapid Joint Forcible Entry Ops (JFEO) within days Rapid power power projection without a permission slip

10 10 Distributed Operations Strategic Operational Across the: Levels of war- Strategic, Operational, & Tactical Range of military operations- Shaping & Engagement to Stabilization & Reconstruction (Phase 0 - Phase 4) Domains of the battlespace- Air, Land, Sea, Space, Cyberspace Tactical

11 11 Distributed Operations An extension of Maneuver Warfare… an additive capability The design, planning, and execution of actions exploiting networked units or capabilities that are separated in space and time in order to apply continuous pressure on an enemy to hasten his defeat. The Marine Corps of the future will continue to fight as a combined-arms, integrated force. Enhancing the ability to operate in a distributed, networked manner; dispersing or aggregating capabilities against both non- traditional and traditional threats, will provide future Joint Force Commanders an additional method with which to threaten the enemy. We execute Distributed Operations in order to… “…Appear ambiguous and threatening…operate on axes that offer numerous courses of action, keeping the enemy unclear as to which we will choose.” Warfighting (MCDP 1)

13 13 Forward-deployed Forces Persistent : Continuous Persistent : Provide an agile & networked sea-based force for shaping & engagement – Continuous Immediate : Within Hours Immediate : Generate and exploit actionable intelligence, employ joint fires, establish JTF C2 – Within Hours Prepositioned & Surged Forces Rapid Within Days Rapid : Execute Joint Forcible Entry, enabling follow-on Joint Force operations – Within Days Decisive Within Weeks Decisive : Achieving operational level objectives with sustainable force; reconstituting and reemploying – Within Weeks Enhanced National Capabilities Shaping & Engagement Stabilization & Reconstruction MEF MEB MEU SPMAGTF / MEU Challenges  Concepts  Capabilities Major Combat Operations

14 14 Connectors Inter-and Intra Theater  CONUS to Advance Base / Sea Base  Fills the Strategic Airlift gap Assault Connectors  Land surface assault Bn in one 8-10 hour period of darkness  Sea base to objective tactical resupply Exploiting Technology LHA(R) Conducts flight ops 24 hours per day for 6 days (obj) Can operate with composite RW/TR/FW ACE or JSF alone  Either 23 JSF or 28 MV-22 or other aircraft mix 23 JSF = 100% CAS coverage at surge rate to 200NM Enables higher mission capable rate for MV-22 Optimized for aviation operations MPF(F) Enables Rapid employment timeline (10 – 14 days) Sized to preposition & selectively offload 2015 MEB Capable of independent employment or with ESG/CSG Aviation ordnance stowage/handling/arming Survivability enhanced by Sea Shield Capable of Joint Forcible Entry when integrated with ESG / CSG MV-22 JSF EFVMERS

15 15 Navy and Marine Corps moving beyond logistic interoperability to seek integration of Service logistics processes in order to optimize support to daily operations and sea- basing Marine logistics modernization will improve tactical/operational logistics support to MAGTF.  Tailor-made to support EMW and Future Joint Operating Concepts.  Integrated approach--People, Processes, and Technology Naval Logistics Integration/Modernization People Technology Processes

16 16 The 21 st Century Marine “It is our leaders – from our most junior, especially our non-commissioned officers, …– who have kept the Corps successful and victorious.” General M.W. Hagee General M.W. Hagee “It is our leaders – from our most junior, especially our non-commissioned officers, …– who have kept the Corps successful and victorious.” General M.W. Hagee General M.W. Hagee Every Marine a Rifleman… and more “Raising the Bar” across the Corps Leadership  Increased decision-making ability/authority Training & Education  Historical & cultural perspectives  More complex skill sets  Intensive tactical training Equipment  Enhancing lethality  Marine Expeditionary Rifle Squad System  Closing the “Digital Divide”

17 17 Preserving our unique ethos Enhanced Marine Corps Capabilities “ Our most effective weapon remains the individual Marine who out-learns, out-thinks, and out- fights any adversary.” General M. W. Hagee “ Our most effective weapon remains the individual Marine who out-learns, out-thinks, and out- fights any adversary.” General M. W. Hagee … We will change how we do it We will not change what we do… Innovating for the future  21 st Century Marine  Exploiting Technology Challenges  Concepts  Capabilities

18 18 The 21 st Century Marine Corps Building on our ethos and ensuring continued warfighting excellence Fulfilling need for:  Speed – in execution  Flexibility – in organization, logistical support, and employment  Agility – in thought and intellect Prepared to:  Prevail in the war on terrorism  Persistently engage globally and respond immediately  Decisively engage both traditional and irregular threats We will produce and equip a 21 st Century Marine imbued with a warrior ethos, armed with the skills and modern capabilities to prevail against traditional and irregular foes.
