    Key Takeaway: Disaggregated Operations

    Improve Disaggregated Operations without compromising preparation for Major Combat Operations

    10

    • Key enablers to improve disaggregated capabilities:

      • LSD 41 class C4I enhancements

        • LINK

        • Bandwidth

      • 3rd MH-60S assigned to ARG

        • A third MH-60S allows full exploitation of the Armed Helo kit equipped helicopter

      • Training

        • Intel

        • Comms

      • KC-130J dedicated support provides:

        • Flexible asset enabling the broad range of MAGTF missions

        • Realizes the full potential of MV-22B and STOVL aviation

      • Staff

        • Requires review of existing Command Element structure


    Slide11 l.jpg

    Inherent Flexibility of ARG/MEU

    Conducted Full Spectrum OPS: Humanitarian Assistance to Combat Operations

    Provided Persistent and Flexible Sea Base

    KEARSARGE:

    National Tasking

    On station and on alert in northern Red Sea for Egypt contingencies

    Operation ODYSSEY DAWN / UNIFIED PROTECTOR

    CARTER HALL:

    2 x MH-60S, SOF detachment embarked for nearly two months of continuous training

    PONCE:

    Operation ODYSSEY DAWN / UNIFIED PROTECTOR

    Key Takeaway: Seabasing

    Provided COCOM with flexible, forward-deployed capabilities

    11


    Slide12 l.jpg

    Invest in Amphibious Forces

    Improve Disaggregated Capabilities

    Advocate for Big Deck Amphibs and STOVL aviation

    Seabasing provides flexible forward deployed capabilities across the spectrum of military operations

    Strategic Investment in Djibouti

    Sustain Relevance / Access to Kuwait
