UNITED STATES — Force Design has re-envisioned the role of the installation from a Force Generation location, meaning a location that Marines train and deploy from, to a Power Projection Warfighting platform, which will simultaneously deploy forces forward but will also command and control those forces. In 2030, it is predicted the Marine Corps will be the most distributed force ever, operating in highly contested environments, while facing near-peer competitors with substantial counter command, control, communications, computers, cyber, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and targeting capabilities presenting the biggest threat to communication networks. In a geographic area like the Pacific, where Marine Corps forces will operate in a widely distributed or disaggregated manner, the Corps requires a highly capable network to coordinate the efforts of such a force.
