Naval Data Warfare Techniques Command and Naval Data Warfare Heart Pacific management hosted Deputy Protection Secretary Kathleen H. Hicks at NIWC Pacific yesterday for a tour of its newest improvements in unmanned applied sciences and command-and-control applications.
NIWC Pacific and its companions briefed the deputy secretary on its strategic efforts to hyperlink operational ideas and capabilities, the strategy for which facilities on warfighter collaboration and steady, speedy supply.
Discussions led by NAVWAR Commander Rear Adm. Doug Small highlighted Venture Overmatch, a high-priority Navy effort to ship a extra deadly, better-connected fleet of the longer term.
