Meeting the demands of today’s security environment means that our amphibious and prepositioning assets must be more integrated to better support steady-state operational requirements. We must also eliminate the false perception that amphibious and prepositioning capabilities are separate and distinct. Amphibious and prepositioning capabilities are complementary and in the future will become more interoperable and mutually supportive across the ROMOs. Both capabilities must evolve to provide greater utility, particularly in irregular warfare and other low- to mid-intensity operations, while retaining full capability to support major combat operations. In particular, our MPF must develop a full at-sea arrival and assembly capability to better support maneuver operations ashore.
About Concepts and Programs
The vision of the Concepts and Programs project is to provide political and military leaders with timely, accurate, and relevant information. The Concepts and Programs project is the premier strategic communications vessel the Marine Corps relies on to inform Congress, the Office of Secretary of Defense, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Think Tanks about the Corps’ vision.
