Special Ops Leaders Outline Troop Requirements for Intell Gathering

1 min read

GISgraphicsU.S. special operations officials have laid out intelligence gathering requirements for troops involved in future missions in both the Arctic and Africa, Defense News reported Tuesday.

Paul McLeary writes Maj. Gen. Brad Webb, commander of US special operations in Europe, told an industry audience that special forces are faced with communications challenges in harsh environments.

He said the U.S. military focuses on the Arctic because it believes the region offers possibilities for maritime routes and land grabs, according to the report.

Rear Adm. Kerry Metz, commander of the Special Operations Command North in Colorado, is expecting the 1st Special Forces Group and the 10th Special Forces Group to reactivate their arctic and mountain warfare capabilities, the report says.

McLeary writes U.S. Army Brig. Gen. John Linder has asked industry partners to collaborate with the service to develop intelligence gathering systems and international data sharing technologies for future operations in Africa.
