Gen. Mark Milley, nominee for the chief of staff post at the U.S. Army, has told Senate Armed Services Committee members that he would prioritize readiness and technology programs if he is confirmed by the full Senate, Breaking Defense reported Tuesday.

Sydney Freedberg Jr. writes Milley said in a written testimony for his nomination hearing that he wants to encourage the military branch to invest in the cybersecurity, big data, robotics, human performance management, munition, three-dimensional printing, advanced materials and nanotechnology areas.

He added he believes the Army’s 2012 and 2014 defense guidance documents need an update to include security issues related to the Islamic State group, China’s military presence in Asia and the Russia-Ukraine conflict, according to Breaking Defense.

He also noted homeland defense, collaboration and global engagement as among the key missions of the Army, the report said.
