This panel discussion brings together leading Marine officers and Army personnel, working on the leading edge of Amphibious and Information warfare.

This panel will look at:

  • Setting out existing and emerging challenges, and their impact of amphibious operations
  • The role of (and need for) disaggregated communication with the amphibious battlespace
  • The organization of joint force command and controL
  • The role of information, as well as its maintenance and capture

Maritime irregular warfare represents an enduring and mounting challenge as nations prepare to meet hybrid maritime threats. Amphibious forces and Special Forces are the first to respond to such activity, and so we are taking the opportunity here to examine the subject in greater depth in terms of specific mission requirements, geographical changes and humanitarian operations. Topics under consideration will include:

  • Understanding the future requirement of amphibious force for a range of missions
  • The importance of a flexible amphibious option within humanitarian missions
  • How sea-level rise will impact future maritime special operations
