                                    The Department of Navy has articulated a firm commitment to make unmanned systems an important part of the Fleet and the Fleet Marine Forces. Studies commissioned by the Department envision large numbers of air, surface and subsurface unmanned vehicles operating alongside manned platforms. While the Department of Navy has requested substantial funding for these unmanned platforms, Congress remains skeptical that the Navy and Marine Corps have a concept of operations (CONOPS) to actually employ the large number of unmanned platforms it desires to procure across the Future Years Defense Program and beyond. This panel will discuss the CONOPS the Navy and Marine... ...read more...

Through a systematic testing approach, the NI Team has developed and implemented an end-to-end C4 shipboard System-of-Systems Operability Test (SOT) that is now a standard pre-deployment evolution for MEUs and embarked SPMAGTFs. This capability is in direct support and alignment with the Commandant’s Force Design 2030 for enhanced naval integration efforts....
